online shopping


I overheard someone in the Danier Leather store yesterday that she loves the Mat&Nat handbags because they are so easy to take care of. She buys a whole bunch of them online and then just return the ones she doesn't like.

Does anyone else do that?!

I suppose it's a smart way to get what you want and do your shopping at the comfort of your home. But wow! I'm not sure I'd shell out a couple hundred dollars for handbags (or any other item) and return them all later?

Is this what people normally do when they shop online? For example, if you buy something from Victoria Secrets, how do you know what you pick out will fit right?

Am too cheap

You know what, I'm just way to cheap to spend all the money in the first place. I'd research something everywhere until I was sure I wanted to buy it and then get it at the best price. I would be nervous to buy several of them and then return because a: am to cheap to do all of that shipping on my own dime and b: what if they wouldn't take it back?

also S&H;isn't refunded

I believe S&H;increases with more items you buy, so you pay shipping and handling for the items to reach you, and again to return what you don't want to the store.. meanwhile you never get back the initial s&h fee you paid... at least this is from what i understand...

also for me shopping is such a hands on type of thing, much for fun that way! :-) i've bought a few items online but only because they weren't available in stores and were things i really wanted.

all in all, in my opinion, its not worth it.

good to know i'm not the only one

I'm totally with you guys on this shopping thing. I hate paying for S&H;, which is probably why I hardly ever buy things online. The only items I've ever bought online are books and skincare. Both items had free shipping. I made sure the Skincare product can be returned if I don't like it. It's such a waste of money to have to pay S&H to get rid of the things you don't want.

Perhaps that woman at Danier was more of a special case than the norm... :P
