The world is constantly moving at a high speed: fast vehicles, fast interwebs, fast news. But what’s even better is a fast delivery of the things you desire such as clothes, shoes, makeup and even groceries.

Some shopping businesses are exclusive online such as Romwe and Shein. Those two sites in particular offer new user discounts and typically have a sale going on. It may sound like a scam but it’s not, these stores have quality clothes for a cheaper price than higher end brands. They have all kinds of shirts, shoes and accessories for a price no higher than $20.

In other news, Walmart and Target have recently started an online pickup system. You download the Walmart or Target app on your phone, select the pickup mode, pick out what you want and then someone will deliver what you ordered to you so you never have to leave your car.

If you’re a homebody or bored during your lazy Saturday, online shopping is great. You can pick up your phone, tablet or computer and start shopping. On the downside, you don’t get to have that face to face interaction. You don’t get the chance to go out and see whatever the world has in store for you.   

If you are sick and need to pick up medicine, cough drops or a heating pad, car delivery would work for you. This way you don’t have to go into a store when you’re feeling bad and you don’t have to interact with people besides your car hop.

With all of this information, you can now choose what you prefer online or the actual store, and with that comes how you get some of your clothes, shoes, and accessories. So it all boils down to how you like to get your clothing, shoes and home items.
