With kids, shopping is like doing another house chore, isn’t it? At least, I feel that way. There is whining when it is not something they need. There is always something else required by the baby when we are doing totally the opposite. I wonder if that’s a skill they learn in the womb.

The convenience of shopping online

The other day we entered a Lifestyle store and almost immediately my son says, ‘this is boring mamma let’s go somewhere else’. He is 3.5. Of course, I did not give in and continued with my shopping but the stress, of explaining and keeping them happy at the same time, is quite tiring. Kids are so pampered with their changed lifestyle these days that they do not know the meaning of shopping. I remember enjoying those weekends when I would happily join my mom and my brother to shop for groceries at a supermarket and then get some dinner at the mall beside it. We did not have play zones to entertain us back then.

Online shopping is the best!

Today, my kids only come with me to the mall if there is a chance that they will get to visit a play area there. Or perhaps attend an event there. Otherwise, they prefer staying home and passing their time anyhow. So, while I have lost the strength to shop along with my kids, as hubby is mostly away, I have resorted to Lifestyle online shopping, something that I can do even while I’m putting the kids to bed.

Shopping from the comfort of my home

There are several reasons why I shop online:

  1. Convenience: This is, of course, the main reason that supersedes shopping in stores. Like I mentioned above, I can shop in my pajamas from the comfort of my bed looking homeless, while my kids are around me. Isn’t that the most convenient shopping lifestyle?
  2. Better prices: Have you looked at the variety of things they have online? Besides that, there are such awesome discounts that even if you are hesitant to buy something; you will end up buying it so that you save when the prices increase.
  3. No crowd: I despise crowds. I will not enter a shop if I see that it is crowded. I personally do not prefer visiting a mall on the weekend as it is super crowded and there is an endless line for changing rooms.  So, not crowded means I’m totally there.
  4. No driving in traffic: Our metro cities have gotten so busy, with so many people travelling on the roads every day, that travelling for just one outfit wouldn’t seem worth the time we have to spend on the road. Home is the best place to shop.
  5. You can send gifts: This is one of my favourite reasons. Gifting someone is usually hard for me and I always prefer giving presents that would be useful to them so visiting several shops for something I’m not sure I’ll find is quite a tedious task. Shopping online makes gifting so much easier because you can look up a variety of useful things, enter their address and poof; it reaches them without you having to move an inch!

Easily sending gifts online

So, whether I’m with kids or not, my wardrobe welcomes a new outfit every two months. All the friends’ birthdays are followed by sending a gift to them, through an online portal. I’m not a shopaholic, but I love spending time online and I am quite content with this lifestyle now.

    Online shopping is okay when kids are sick or you need to buy a gift. But I do prefer to try on and feel the fabric before I buy clothes. I go only on weekdays and when kids are away at school to shop peacefully.
