My name is Mathew Johnson and I have been an internet shopper for a long time now. This article is not about me or about my shopping history (though you may find hints of it here). This is about few simple things that most people miss out when it comes to online shopping. There are so many people on the internet who claim to teach you tactics for online shopping. Don’t feel disappointed if say that there is actually no such tactic that works. It is just a little common sense that helps you become a smart shopper.
If you know what I mean…
As they say, common sense is not common anymore, I have decided to try and explain the simple things that can help you become a better shopper.
Let me start by taking you back to the days when there was no internet. It was very common to see people in streets walking around with bags of groceries or clothes. People actually had to go out and get things for themselves. It is hard to believe this, but shopping was one of the favourite things to do at that time. It is still a favourite way to spend time even now but it was a little different back then.
For people who were shopping on a budget, shopping took a lot more time. There was a whole process behind it. Here is how it went:
- Go to the store
- Scan around for deals or offers
- Find and compare the deals
- Check the prices of the deal products and do the math
- Compare the results of multiple deal products
- See if it suits your budget.
- Buy it or leave it
That was how things used to work back in the day. While some of you may disagree with me on this but that is how things should work even now. This is the best strategy to buy things whether you are buying it online or from the store.
I have been doing this online for as long as I can remember. One thing that I make sure to do is to check the upcoming sale on Flipkart. That way I know when to take action. This is really important. You need to shop at the right time to get the right price. Only then will you be able to shop within your budget and save some money.
My favourite online shopping destination
While Flipkart is my favourite shopping destination online, there are other sites like Myntra and Amazon which I frequently visit for offers and deals. In short, I keep checking for deals and offers online constantly. This is not just for shopping websites. I do it for my travels too. I am a frequent traveler and I make sure that my travel budget doesn’t go above and beyond my expectation. To do that I keep looking for flight deals at least a week before I travel. Trust me, it does help me in saving some bucks.
This is how I get the best deals online. If you too are a regular shopper on Flipkart, make sure to check the upcoming sale on Flipkart.
