“Shopping” is that one word which
makes all women squeal in delight and all men shiver in their boots.
But for me it was always the reverse.
I never liked shopping. Occasionally window shopping was ok, but I was never
comfortable going into any crowded shop or market and digging under heaps of
available options and finally choosing one or none.
So you’ll wonder who did shopping for
this mad girl. Well before marriage it was upto my parents and now my hubby who
fills up my wardrobe.
But now, after hearing from my friends
what fun I was missing, somewhere down the lane, in corner of my heart, I felt
I should give a try. But going to mall still gives me jitters.
So I heard about online shopping, wherein there are no crowds, no
hustling, no long queues, lots of options and varieties all sitting in comfort
of our house.
I started doing some research and
finalized on Jabong.com, which is an online shopping site. Since it was my first time, I
didn’t want to invest a huge amount of money and take risk. So I set my
spending limit to 500 bucks.
So on a fine day, after my daughter
went to sleep, I sat in front of my laptop, and logged in their Jabong.com site. I had thought I would get confused by
seeing the options, but I was surprised to see well-arranged site. Since I was
not decided on what to buy I kept surfing through the options and got confused
and lost on what to buy.
But I was
surprised to see lots of options and discounts that were available on their
sites which we don’t get even during sales in malls. So after much searching
through their site I finally decided to buy some lip balms and dove elixir oil,
as their total came in my set budget.
Even then I was bit skeptical about, “what
if they deliver damaged goods or expired date goods?” But then since they had
option of payment on delivery, my mind rested and I placed my order.
Immediately I got a mail and sms
stating my order details and by which date I’ll receive the articles. Though
according to that I was supposed to receive it in 4 days from the day of order,
I was surprised to receive it in 2 days.
Till I received my parcel I was kept
intimated by their emails as when the consignment was dispatched, when it is
supposed to reach me and on what day it might reach my house.
To sum up, my 1st
experience on online shopping was a success and satisfied. I am now looking
forward to enjoy the joys of shopping from comforts of my home.
