Do you shop online?

And if you do what kinds of things do you buy? I get a lot of things through overstock and ebay.

  • I used to shop on ebay a lot, but I felt like I never "won" anything-at the last second somebody would outbid me. lol. I buy a lot online, sometimes Walmart, I just bought some books on Amazon. Otherwise just random places if I see something I like.

I've bought clothing/shoes/purses, makeup, supplements, books/textbooks/CDs/movies, printers, digital cameras, luggage, lamps/mirrors/decorative accessories/art, shelving systems, window treatments, small appliances, furniture (including a huge entertainment center for my family room) and a thousand other things!

  • Yes, more and more. It seems like you can get better deals and discounts online. I always look for free shipping though b/c you can really get screwed with high shipping rates.

  • I have bought pretty much everything online at one point another. Lived in Alaska for several year and online was sometimes the only way to go, that is if you could find someone to ship it to you, and sometimes shipping was as much as the item, but had no other choice sometimes. I love shopping online.
