As much as online shopping is riddled with convenience and the ability to sit at home and get what you need, often at better pricing, it can easily be your financial downfall.
Stacking up the pros and cons of online shopping might sound seems more like it favors the former more than the latter.
Online shopping allows you to avoid the crowds, confusion and clutter that is shopping at a physical store. No pushy salespeople, long lines or inept customer service personnel can stand in your way when you're sitting on the couch and ordering exactly what you want at a moment's notice.
Of course, you have to worry about sizes and the object or item in question not appearing as depicted online the way you'd hope. That said, those shortcomings hardly stand in the way of not having to deal with the general public on any given day when an excursion is about to take place. This is especially pertinent information during the holidays when crowds and craziness are at an all time high.
Most online stores, the reputable ones, give you the option of returning things with little or no headaches, plus of you can't discount the free shipping element that almost makes buying from home a no brainer.
