I’ve been doing a lot of browsing on Amazon, Ebay and William-Sonoma for the past 2 days. I haven’t purchased anything yet, but I’ve come close. In fact, I’m taking a break from searching now. Among other things, I call myself looking for a large salad bowl. Why? I have no idea. It’s not like I’m going to cook or throw a dinner party anytime soon. Goodness. I really don’t understand my slight obsession with kitchenware, when I’m not that big a fan of cooking. I have pots I purchased almost a year ago that have not yet been used. What’s worse about this whole situation is that now that I’ve started browsing, I can’t stop. Online shopping is worse than window shopping. At least stores with a physical address close. So there is only so much window shopping you can do. On the internet, stores are open 24hours which leads to so much time being wasted because people like me often end up going down to the physical store to touch and feel what we want before actually purchasing online.

Without the physical restriction of both time and location (you have to actually go and retrieve the object of desire), I will shop until my credit cards give out. I had to stop online shopping. I only buy online when I buy gifts that need to be wrapped and shipped or I can’t find it locally.
