Online shopping is so convenient and easier ever before. For me, this is even easier since getting an Amazon Prime Membership. However, there are some things in my opinion that you should still try to buy in store, at least at first.
Before I begin, let me say this: if you’ve bought something that’s on this list already and you want to buy a different color or something, than I always turn to the websites because I already know what I am getting.
So, here are some things that you should probably avoid adding to your cart:
Now, I love shopping for purses as much as the next person. However, for me, buying purses is something that you need to see in person before you buy. Otherwise, there’s really no other way to gage the size of the purse that you are buying, or what it actually looks like.
What I’ve also noticed is that purses are the cheapest at the outlets — whether you’re into Coach, Dooney and Bourke, Kate Spade, and so on. Therefore, sometimes the prices online tend to be a little more.
For me, yarn is something that you always have to buy in the store. I’ve had so many instances when I was looking for something online, found something that I thought would match the criteria of what I wanted. So, I bought it. When I got it home, it was so much different than what I was actually looking for. However, when I go to the store, I was able to get exactly what I needed.
Jeans are the weirdest things for me to buy. Sometimes, I need to go a size up. Other times, I need to go a size down. However, I will say this: the size that I always order is never the size that I actually end up needing. Therefore, I have to exchange it for a different size. This all could be avoided if I had went to the store to get them in the first place.
This is one that always gets me. How do you know what it smells like through your phone or the computer? Exactly.
One thought on “Four Things I Try To Never Buy Online”
So true! I can buy shirts online, and have bought several from Amazon, but I can never buy pants online. And smelly things…that just seems silly now that you mention it!
