  • I love online shopping. Only the sizing can sometimes be a bit of a problem.

  • I do like online shopping as you tend to buy the things that you really need and the things that are on sale. It has stopped me from impulse buying like I tended to do prior to having children. Having 2 children 18 months part is enough to make me avoid the shops whenever possible with them!

  • i do for some things but not for others, i much prefer to do my Fruit & Vege at the shops to make sure im getting the best quality but prefer online for kids things!

  • The more I shop online, the more I’m hooked.

  • sometimes for groceries if they have a special deal, also ali express

  • Yes for clothing, accessories and whitegoods. Select the merchants that use Paypal. When you run into issues, they will help to resolve it.

  • I do sometimes. Although I have had a few instances where I have bought something thinking it was one size but came to be another, I had even measured myself prior to being sure! I find when you find brands/websites you can rely on, stick to them. The main online shopping I do are the ones where they have stores I can visit so I know the quality etc of their products. Happy shopping!

  • Yes. Recently I was looking for a particular hair dye that used to be sold in supermarkets but now is not stocked anymore. I found what I wanted online and even with postage it was still cheaper than what I used to pay. It was delivered within a week – fantastic. Just make sure you’re dealing with reputable companies.

  • Yes all the time, I love it, saves going to the shops and there are generally more sizing options and clothes in stock. :-)

  • Yes, it’s wonderful, though it works best if you’re menu planning and do one big shop every week or two.

  • We buy most stuff online these days. Mainly because we can never get what we want in our town.

  • I have shopped online, it’s not something I do all the time though. As long as you use PayPal and thoroughly check who you’re buying from, it’s all good, some money to be saved for sure!

  • I love online shopping. So convenient and plenty of bargains to be found, When buying clothes I generally only buy from retailers that allow returns to stores (i.e Myer, Target) so that if the fit isn’t right I don’t need to post items back and instead can return them in store.

  • I love online shopping but I always make sure there is easy and straight forward exchange/refund policy especially for clothing because although you can buy based on measurement some clothes fit differently. I love the convenience and that I don’t need to drag four kids around the shops.

  • Yes I do and I love it. You can get some great bargains
