Have you ever been caught out without a really great dress for a special occasion? Then you could be one of the thousands of women who are just too busy to shop. Careers, families and relationships keep us on the go day and night. We rarely have enough time to get from one task to the next. Something always has to give.
Even though our lives are jam-packed, we can still fit in a good shopping session. And it can be done from the comfort of your own couch. You don’t even need to shop around if you’re using credit catalogues as they stock far more items than a high street retailer possibly could. Some will even provide you with everything you need all under one web URL!
I love shopping, but I hate having to drudge around in the rain and wind. This time of year is definitely no fun for shopping, and as it gets closer to Christmas, I think I can do without the crowds and time-costly queues. For me, I just want to browse on my tablet or laptop. And I want to try my fashion on at home under real lights. I want to see how something goes with lots of items in my wardrobe, not just what I happen to be wearing at that moment.
There are times when a last minute invite out to a special do will pop up in my messages. And of course, there is nothing suitable in my wardrobe. I don’t often have time to head out late night shopping, but I can order from a catalogue to be delivered next day. Best of all, there are really good returns policies if something isn’t quite right. It makes life so much easier.
Of course, if I’m not in a hurry, I can always spend a little time browsing a catalogue to see what might suit me. The images are always good so you can see what body shape a particular item will suit. I love that you can browse by item type, like tops, skirts, etc. You can even create scrapbooks or use something like Pinterest to create a board of the items you’re thinking of putting together.
The other benefit of catalogue shopping is that you can spread the cost of the items you buy if you get caught short. For a last minute event or holiday booking, this can be essential! Waiting until payday isn’t always an option if an emergency comes up either. If the fridge stopped working, I would need to be able to replace it immediately, whether the cash was in my pocket or not. Catalogues that sell appliances could be the best option in those circumstances.
I do love shopping. But I really hate queues, and I hate bad weather. Shopping online or by catalogues avoids all that hassle. Let the Posty do the walking! Sometimes I genuinely just don’t have the time to deal with the hassle of parking and trying things on during opening hours. Click happy for your shopping today.
