Although I started online shopping in 2012,2014 was the biggest year in terms of both size and cost of items. The first product I bought online was a data card from Flipkart through mobile. From then on, I have been purchasing almost all things online from books to mobiles,television to refrigerator.
In this blog post, I am listing the top 21 items purchased by me in 2014 in terms of cost. The reason for writing this post is to show that there should be no second thoughts when you want to buy something online. Online shopping saves you time and money. You don't have to deal with nuisance sales people from offline shops. You don't have to leave the comfort of your home.You can check all the reviews and compare the prices from trusted online shopping sites.
I have bought from many online shopping sites. To name few, my first purchase was through Flipkart and after that,I have bought from Amazon, Snapdeal, Shopclues, Homeshop18, Tradus, Infibeam,eBay etc. Out of all these sites, I found Flipkart and Amazon best in terms of customer service and shipping time.
