Shop ‘Til You Drop!

JaRaya Carr, Editor

While being at home all the time and not doing anything, you end up on the internet, going through Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat. You run across a cute outfit and you want to buy, so you buy it, and a couple of days later, your house is full of boxes of random stuff you bought from online. Now you are in DEBT!!! Online shopping is dangerous. Who knew?

Being at home and online is a dangerous game to play because I look at things I need/I want to buy. I have the money for it, but later, it gets dangerous. You keep buying things and more things. Since the malls and other clothing stores are closed due to the Coronavirus, shopping online is getting popular since it is easier, and you don’t have to leave your house. I started shopping online because the opening the box part- it is addicting. You tear the box open, get all the entertaining bubble wrap to pop, and when I get a new package, it is like Christmas. Sometimes you don’t know what you are going to get. You might get a shirt that is too big, the shoes you ordered can be the wrong color or even they sent you someone else’s box on accident, so you have a box with a mystery in it!

In quarantine, I have bought phone cases, AirPods cases, Apple Watch bands, laptop cases, clothes, a stand, and shoes. I think it might be a problem, I may need help! Every commercial I see, I want to buy it from political chess to a baby alive doll for my cousin.
