hi
guys how’s it going in today’s video I wanted to chitchat with you about online
shopping and just go over my five tips on how to have a better online shopping
experience so let’s jump right into it so tip number one would be to step away
from the card so if you’ve ever liked me then whatever your online shopping
you’re just adding literally everything to your cart and then usually I’ll go
through after and start weeding out like what I don’t actually want but I find
it’s much much better to do that so yeah not everything to your cart we know
what you don’t want and then step away step away from your computer go make
Center you know go do whatever go out with your friends and then come back later
and then come back and say do I really need any of this stuff and honestly half
the time when I do step away I totally forget about everything that I did put
in my cart and I’m like wow I really didn’t need any of that stuff anyways and
I won’t even edifying anything but if you do come back and there’s still those
one or two pieces that you’re thinking about and you know you really want them
so go ahead and purchase those but honestly I find this is such a good thing to
do because it really makes you realize if you do need any of that stuff or if
you don’t because half the time it’s just fun to just throw things in your cart
and then pretend like you’re shopping so it’s just a really good test to see
for yourself if you really need those pieces or not so I would highly recommend
doing that the next time your online shopping just step away for a couple hours
and then come back and see if you even want it so so tip number two would be to
do your research and this is so important with online shopping there are so
many online stores so many options available but if you’re unfamiliar with the company
that it’s so important to do your research and make sure that your money is
being well spent so I have totally been ripped off by a company before and now
I am super aware and I will always do heavy-duty research before buying
anything from a store that I’m unfamiliar with so there’s a few good options
online for checking out stores one of the ones that I really like is the Better
Business Bureau so if you searched up a store or a company on there usually
they have a rating and those are all from customer reviews you can see all the
negative reviews you can see positive reviews and then you can see how the
company responded to those so that’s a really great ways to do your research on
a company just to see how their customer services there’s no we’re feeling a
feeling like your money was not well spent or you felt cheated by a company so
it’s so important to do your research before you make any sort of commitment
with your hard-earned money so my third tip would be to know your body and know
what works for you like for me personally I never ever ever buy pants online
because I am tall and my tips are a little bit bigger so I’m not something that
I really like to try on in person make sure that it fits properly I will
violate something a little bit slower because I know that those will fit but if
it’s like a tight pair of jeans that I’m not going to risk buying them online
because I know chances are they probably won’t fit properly and I don’t want to
have to go through the whole hassle of like returning something and shipping it
back so that’s definitely something to keep in mind when you’re shopping online
your height your size and just thinking okay what are the chances that this
will fit me properly before you go in and make the purchase if it’s a store
that I really know well and I’ve gotten multiple things from them in the past
and I know it fits properly then I have no problem but if it’s someone I haven’t
ordered from before I’m always really skeptical so I’d rather just not so just
be aware of stuff like that and that will make your online shopping experience
a little bit better if you know what’s going to fit you and what’s not so tip
number four would be to use the search feature this is something that I just
recently started doing and I’m like obsessed with it so I try now to shop more
with a list in mind instead of just going on websites and browsing through
absolutely everything because that’s a great way to buy some stuff that you
really don’t need so when you have a list of things that you really want then
you’re not overspending and you’re just adding what you actually need to your
wardrobe so I find using the search bar like say I was on the hunt for a black
pencil skirt then I would search black skirt and see what popped up and I’ll go
to all my favorite stores and see what’s popping up there and then I’ll narrow
it down to my favorite from there just a really great way to avoid the whole
browsing and adding everything to your cart is really take advantage of the
search feature it’s so good you will not regret that and my last tip tip number
five is to know where the company is and know where you are because I live in
Canada so I like to shop online from a lot of stores in the States but it absolutely
sucks because chances are I’m going to have to pay customs on that as well so
I’m not just going to buy like one top from somewhere and then have to be
shipping and then have to be customs because by the end of it it’s like double
the price that I actually paid for it so definitely not worth it like I recently
bought a dress and a pair of shoes online and I paid for how much I create for
shipping but then I also had to pay fifty three dollars in customs alone and I
was just like wow that was not for this so know where you’re living know where
shipping from and a lot for that within your budget and make sure it’s
worthwhile to get to you in the end so those are my five tips for shopping online
and let me help you guys how many Clips yourselves I would love to hear them
