oOnline shopping has become the latest addiction of us lovely ladies. Earlier this week at work a friend who is been introduced to the digital age made her first online purchase. She was totally over the moon with how easy it was to do this transaction. And the other interesting thing was she purchased and Ebook , i was so totally amazed at how my friend is taking to the digital age like a duck to water. So it seems our lil digital club at work is slowly growing with more having Blackberrys , Samsung Tablets and Netbooks. It makes me feel like a proud mum moment seeing how fast the girls at work are keeping up with technology.
In the mean time , i have been shopping in the Apps store on my Samsung Tablet, I have been amazed at the amount of free apps and like a kid in a candy shop i been downloading them. From gorgeous wallpapers of my beleoved London to recipe books , to learn Arabic , to a library of books for reading (yes MC will be giving it a try ). The options seem endless and makes one just want continually download. The best part of this is that all these apps are free 🙂 Bargain and free are words which make me very happy .
But then I have 2 problems a) I dont have a credit card to shop online b) I dont have an unlimited Data Plan. So after my online booking drama ( ticket has been booked sponsored by bro and yes and the price was still the same this morning) i have been considering getting a credit card for these purchases. As for problem B a work friend also suggested going to Mugg and Bean for their free WiFi and a lovely coffee then spend a few hours in download heaven.Just the thought of downloading unlimited excites me like a fat kid who loves cake
In the UK virtually all shopping can be done online from food to clothing to jewellery to home improvement to leisure. Hopefully this trend catches on here in SA but before it can we need affordable and reliable internet accessfor this to work effectively.
So come on internet providers think about making access more affordable and reliable so then us girls can do what we do best ……….Shop at home without having to brave the madness of the mall….Have a lovely day digi addicts
