Online Shopping Made Easy

Times have been tough for many people and businesses. Workers are being laid off and many brick-and-mortar shops have been closing shop. People are becoming more price conscious and many people are now going online to look for the best deals. Here at Studio 747 we are all about helping you save time and money so that you can do the things that matter to you most - like being creative and working on increasing your own business.

There used to be a time when the internet was just a place to look for information, but now you can find and purchase just about anything online these days. Artists can buy art supplies online, photographers can buy cameras online, and fashionistas, well, can buy any kind clothing item from the thousands of retailers and boutiques who have set up shop on the internet.

Technology sure has come a long way, hasn't it?

Recently I came across Moneysupermarket.com, a resource for online shopping. You can shop and compare prices on everything from books and music to travel and fashion. You'll get a list of online retailers that carry a particular item along with a list price. You can also read expert reviews and user reviews on items that you're interested in. You can even submit your own review to be posted on the site.

One thing I've been in the market for is a new, high quality digital camera. The Canon Powershot SX1 IS looks like a contender...and it's within my price range.



Bottom line: Now more than ever it is so easy to shop online and compare prices of things you'd like to buy. This is something that you should be doing anyways - whether or not the economy is down!

Do you use online shopping comparison websites? Why or why not?
