Basically I don't like shopping , but when I do so I prefer to shop in the Big store ; so that I don't waste time. And in my opinion online shopping is such a great solution.

1) It depends on time availability. In addition, I usually try to do bigger shopping in the first week of each month because I have enough money to buy goods for a month. Other weeks depends on my financial situation & time. Moreover, I do not like to spend a lot of time because time is precious. Occasionally, I go to the high street for shopping because there need to spend more time to find the goods than other shops & market.

2) In the contemporary world, most of the consumer do online shopping for save the times. Actually, we need to spend a lot of time to do high street shopping such as traveling time & finding goods at the store. However, Online shopping has a lot of facility such as save time, easy search goods, discount items, most varieties available and easy payment.
