Shopaholics can find online shopping to be the ultimate escape but this very activity could end up fueling a spending addiction. If youâ€™re not keeping tabs on spending and just clicking away when you find that â€œgreatâ€ deal, you could end up doling out much more money than you planned.
While you can find some unbeatable deals online, make sure you read the refund or exchange policy and are aware of all shipping costs and taxes that will be added to the bill. Ask yourself if you would buy that same item from a store for that final price. If the answer is â€œno,â€ itâ€™s time to move along.
