If someone had told me, a few short years ago, that I would eventually be doing most of my shopping online, I probably would have laughed at the very thought. After all, I loved to shop around for the best price, the perfect color, and I would settle for nothing less. Even if that meant visiting several brick and mortar stores and coming home victorious, but exhausted. Several years, a husband, and a next full of kids later, I just do not have the time or energy for such excursions.
It took a while before I became comfortable with shopping online. However, these days, I actually do the majority of my shopping on the World Wide Web and I couldn't be happier. The key to getting just what I'm looking for, at a price I want, is comparison shopping... Become.com makes comparison shopping a breeze! The site has everything I need to make a smart purchase, right at my fingertips, even all the most recent discount codes. If I am in the market for nautical lamp shades, I simply type that into the search box and click the SHOP button and immediately have results for my item listed from lowest to highest prices, with links right to the stores. Or I can click RESEARCH instead and instantly have access to product reviews, discussions, and loads of other information. The same goes for pink floor lamps, polka dot lamp shades, or anything else my heart desires. Online shopping doesn't get any easier than this! Of course, I do miss the long lines, grumpy sales clerks, and mile long walks, at the brick and mortar stores. NOT!
