15 Reasons Why Online Shopping Is Better Than In-Store Shopping

Online shopping is one of those things that you either love or hate. Shopping in person can be pretty fun and is a good way to bond with friends or see things in person before you buy them, but online shopping still takes the cake as my preferred shopping technique. Online shopping is one of the best things to come out of the Internet and can be used to order anything under the sun. There are many reasons why I love online shopping. Here are the top 15 reasons why online shopping is better than shopping in the store.

1. You can wear your pajamas and don't have to leave your bed.

Don't feel like dressing up? You don't have to.

2. You can search directly for what you want instead of looking around a store.

There's no search bar at the store. Instead of walking around for hours to find that jacket you want, you can just search for it online and find it in a few minutes.

3. You don't have to ask people for help.

It is the perfect way to avoid awkward small talk and you don't have to rely on the sales people to find things for you.

4. There are more options to choose from.

The internet is full of different stores. Almost every store usually has more items online than they do at their in-store locations too.

5. It is more exciting to anticipate getting a package in the mail than to just buy it and get it right away.

Receiving a package in the mail is like getting a gift from yourself.

6. There's no waiting in line.

Not having to wait in line at checkout is one of the best things about online shopping. You can pay whenever you want.

7. You have more time to think before impulse buying.

If you're unsure about a purchase, you can just close your computer and buy it later.

8. You don't have to worry about parking.

Parking is the worst and on weekends it is almost impossible to find a parking spot at the mall or grocery store.

9. There are more sales and you can use coupon codes.

You can use as many coupons as you want without looking like one of those crazy coupon hoarders.

10. You can shop at any time.

Want to shop at midnight? No worries. Malls and stores usually don't open until 9 a.m. and close around 10 p.m.

11. No carrying bags.

Your arms will thank you later.

12. You don't have to worry about starting an awkward conversation when you see someone you know at the store.

One of the worst things about going to the store is that moment when you see your old math teacher who hated you or some person you barely talk to and are forced to strike up a conversation.

13. It is easier to compare prices between stores.

You can keep multiple tabs open on your computer and compare prices for the best deal. This definitely beats that moment when you see that sweater you bought for full price on sale at another store.

14. There are no pushy sales people following you around.

You have the freedom to browse as much and for as long as you want without judgment.

15. You can see reviews of the product before you buy it.

A sales person is never going to tell you if one of their products is bad, but the people of the internet are brutally honest and will guide you in the right direction on what to buy.

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
