Once upon a time, in the old days of mail order catalogs, people would order things from a paper catalog. Nowadays you can order anything you want on line. Why go out in the snow and rain when you can browse a zillion different websites and get anything you want! One day in the hot summer of Arizona, my husband was ill and he needed a pair of slippers or moccasins. If you’ve ever tried to find these types of slippers in 110 degree days in Arizona, you will not find them anywhere. That was the day we found a shoe site that sold every shoe imaginable. We ordered the moccasins and they arrived in a few days in perfect condition. We’ve never been in a shoe store again!

One of the most popular on line auction companies can be addicting for buyers and sellers. I’ve bought and sold on this website. When I’m selling, I check my website every morning as soon as I get up to see if there are any new orders, and I get totally psyched when I get auction bids. When the auctions end on Sunday night, my eyes are glued to the screen of my computer like I had a bet on a horse race. I also get excited when I bid on an item and get notified that another bid came in and outbid me. I will go raise my bid, and the game begins.

Part of the addiction is just browsing and seeing new or unique items. Then the battle of the conscious begins, should I or shouldn’t I. I’ll just bid low, and if I don’t get the item, that’s ok. Something goes off inside you when somebody else bids on the item. OK, just raise the bid a little bit, and you are the winner for a few hours or days. This is the fun part of online bidding. Just the idea of winning can be addicting. You can just fall in love with an item, it’s in your budget, just a small credit card or pay pal purchase. It’s fun getting something in the mail besides junk mail and bills. It’s like getting a present.

It’s easy to do it again and again. Especially when you can get designer clothes at a fraction of their retail price, either gently preowned or brand new. One can get carried away…it is important to not buy everything that catches your eye. Some online companies have a no return policy. You don’t want you house to look like some of the people on the Hoarders TV show!

You can also get carried away with how high you are going to bid. Do you really need that cool looking tea pot shaped like a kitty? Maybe so! If it is not a priceless antique, stay within your budget. You can find some interesting and unusual items on these websites that you cannot get at your local store. Some sellers scout out estate sales and garage sales and come up with items that you may not find anywhere else. If you really want this item, go for it. Keep your budget in mind and online shopping can be really fun, and you won’t have to go to credit counseling when you’re done. Happy shopping!
