Think back to your latest shopping experience and list the pitfalls you find yourself in. Compare it to the standard list of typical purchasing mistakes that buyers tend to do:
a) You’ve forgotten your shopping list or home shopping list
b) You don’t know what items you’re missing
c) Be tempted to see all the ‘new things’ and other exhibits in the store
d) Tickled the idea of smart savings with “Huge Sales” and other similar inscriptions.
d) Missed one of the ‘most essential items’
e) ”disorder impulsive purchase’ ‘
(r) Your kids running around the store were persuading you to buy a bunch of unnecessary things. Of course you can’t say no to him!
z) You’ve lost your shopping account and gone too far!
(i) Comparative Purchase Syndrome: other buyers will advise you on what else you might need
(j) Sellers are not so well informed! The Internet could be better than this
(k) Long queues and queues at check-in desks. Free time!!!
l) Parking is clogged, in the shopping center. And it’s an extra effort, gas and inflated bills.
Honestly, if you’ve made 3 or 4 of these 12 of the most common shopping mistakes, it’s time to go online to escape. Do you disagree with overtime, excessive indulgence that deprives you of much-needed money? Or shock yourself with inflated credit card bills at the end of each month. Most often, shopping ends with a nightmare with unplanned and unorganized indulging in shoppers. On the other hand, “buying online” is a place where you still have a controlled trading environment, and therefore the likelihood of profligacy and regret is relatively lower afterwards. However, the resulting flaws are just as important to buyers. For example: unsafe online payments, problems with home delivery, mishandling of goods by shippers, late delivery, lost shipment, inconsistencies visible in goods posted on the Internet, and in delivery, receipts, etc.
What about balancing offline purchases with a little online planning?
1) Make a list of things you’ll need to shop. I knew you’d always loved! But this time I want you to do it online. Log in, open a spreadsheet or Word document, and quickly list your items. Print them out and take them with you. Follow the requirements you’ve listed carefully.
2) Shop online with smart gadgets and trolleys. This means that you can instantly sign up at your favorite stores, such as HomeGrocers or TraderJoe, or at any other store you like, for groceries and other related purchases. And it’s easy to create your own shopping lists online. Print them out and take them with you wherever you go.
3) Try Shopping 2.0! If you don’t have in-store preferences and want to shop in conjunction with offline or online shopping, use web apps and shopping tools such as the shopping list on Infodoro or Froogle on Google.com. These online shopping lists can be created, managed, stored, and even viewed online. This is the biggest advantage if you forget your home shopping lists. You can log in and access it at any time, even from your mobile phone.
4) Making a shopping list doesn’t always mean just writing down everything you need. Either way, it’s something that your brain can easily store, process and remember. What else can fall is the number, stamps and stores in which you need to buy the goods. Use shopping tools such as Shopping Lists and Froogle to create an orderly shopping list with items, item descriptions, stores, numbers, categories, and other items you want to keep.
5) Shopping Smart shopping is not always faster and more organized purchases, as well as saving as many dollars as possible. You’re well understood! I have come to coupons, you can always exchange them for goods in stores where you make purchases. After all, why pay more if you know that coupons can save you money? Be sure to look for coupons for your previous purchases and those that were in the newspapers, and take them with you when you shop. Many will still forget to put them on or do not use them at all, standing at the counters and making payments.
6) Prioritize your things as “most necessary” to get a quick list of items you need right away. Again, the Internet and a few desktop shopping apps will help you filter out your shopping lists for the “most essential” items, such as coupons. Use these web apps and be aware of changes in your purchasing behavior in general, in addition to purchasing and spending habits.
7) Create specialized shopping lists sorted by category and shopping. To make your buying job more manageable, you can always focus. You can share your list of items and share some of your purchases with family members, children or spouses. Web apps allow you to sort shopping lists and divide items into stores and categories in ascending or descending order. Using the Internet, you can send half of your shopping list to your partner, so that he picked them up in the store next to his work, and the other half you can take care of in stores on the way home. This way you will save time and do not face problems parking in all passing stores. You can also sort lists by item category and decide what you do and what your children or partner can take care of. Suppose you can be quick and nimble at the grocery store, while someone in your family can buy goods and so on. Dividing your list into categories and sharing some of your shopping tasks with others will also save you a lot of time, gasoline, hassle and hassle with store staff that don’t really support you.
Using the Internet a little while planning your shopping schedule, you’ll easily save time, energy, gasoline, and mistakes you keep repeating. What’s wrong with optimizing your personal time with a little online planning? Use the Internet to your advantage, whether it’s shopping or shopping planning! And the next time you meet a bewildered buyer, be sure to share some tips and tricks that can also make him smarter.
