Would you rather shop online or go to the stores? Favorite Retailers?

With the price of gas right now, I love to shop online. Our budget doesn't allow for as much shopping as I would like with the economy the way that it is.

  • I wish I could shop online, but we're on a budget, so we go to the local stores within a 5-10 mile radius once or twice a week and get anything we need.

  • I'm a Wal-Mart kind of girl and it's within a mile of where I live. So are several major grocery stores - So with the price of shipping, I could spend less in gas to get to the stores. Or even better... I just walk!

  • I've really gotten lazy with the computer and I would just rather shop on-line. I love shopping at the '' - of course, I usually can't afford their stuff, but it's great to browse.

  • I like to shop online but they have just started taxes purchases made online for NY state residents so I may not be doing that as often any more.

  • I usually shop at the store.... alone, if possible. I like to be able to get away for some time by myself once in awhile. Even then, it is usually just for groceries because I am really not much of a shopper. I have occasionally gotten items online, but since I don't have a credit card I am really rather limited on my options as far as that goes.
