How to Make Online Shopping Even Easier.

1. Keep your purse right next to the computer.

It's all about proximity. If your office is upstairs, keep the handbag there. The closer your wallet and credit cards are, the easier it is to shop online.

2. Compare prices.

Just because you find what you're looking for at the top of your Google search, doesn't mean it's the very best value. Didn't your Mama ever tell you you'd better shop around? Comparative shopping online is so easy, unlike trekking from store to store on foot to compare prices and sales at the mall. Put on your Bob Barker thinking cap and look around until you guessed it, the price is right.

3. Love thy coupon.

Online coupons are everywhere, and it's worth a few cyberminutes of your time to seek them out and use them. Whether it's 15% off or free shipping, seek thy coupon and ye shall find. Catalogs.com is swimming with cute little red tag specials and money saving certificates. We're cool that way.

4. Read product reviews.

If product reviews are listed, read them. They'll give you honest feedback on the product you're buying and will keep you from making a completely blind purchase. They'll provide tips on product performance, visuals and other useful tidbits they may not list in the product description. I've acquired many a pair of perfect fit shoes from fellow online shoppers warning me to order a size up because certain heel sizes run small.

5. Hide online receipts from husband.

This tip is self-explanatory.

And for a few other, less cheeky online shopping tips- here's what our friends from onlinesavingsaccounts.com have to say...
