I was so happy when I learned about how much you could save by shopping online. I used to always go to the store for everything until I was talking to a buddy that told me the benefits of online shopping. It didn’t make sense to me at first because I figured you would end up paying more for things because you also have to pay for shipping expenses. Well, one of the first things I decided to look for was new air filters for my HVAC system. When I seen the prices for these high quality HEPA air filters, I was in shock! At the store, I would easily pay triple the price! This is why I would often get the lower quality filters with a lower MERV rating, because I couldn’t afford the good kind. Now I could get a bulk package of high quality HEPA filters for roughly the same price as I used to pay for the cheap brands! After buying those, I looked into a lot of other things I could get for great prices. Nowadays, I probably purchase half the things I need from the online stores instead of going to regular stores. There are certain things I still must go to the regular store for like groceries, but when I think I can save money, I always make sure to go online to look at the prices! Of course, you always have to be careful about shopping online, you don’t want to get ripped off. There are some places that will overcharge you when you can actually get those items cheaper by going to a regular store. This is why it’s best to always compare prices when shopping.
