Whoever said money can’t buy happiness simply didn’t know where to go shopping. ~ Bo Derek 

Shopping ~ A word more than the sum of its letters, mere two-syllable word but has the immense power to elevate you mood and sink your wallet. 🙂

Prioritizing you needs and shopping within budget is smart shopping but with this accelerating price-tag, budget and shopping doesn’t do hand in hand unless.. you shop in discount season but there is another catch, there are only two EOSS (end of season sale) albeit they are my favourite seasons but waiting so long to buy dresses or pair of shoe I am absolutely in love with, is quite perilous.. You see .. They can go Out-Of-Stock by the EOSS, and that fear always makes me shop by paying full price. Every time I go shopping I say “God bless my wallet”, and it’s apt but not since I met the online shopping portals.

Now, not everyone is enthusiastic with the notion of online shopping, questions like, If it’s safe? Will you get what you see? Will it fit you? What if you get damaged goods etc? Oh the what-if session will never stop, but you must know that online shopping portals like Flipkart, Myntra, Yebhi and many others take care of all our What-ifs. Shopping with just one click, and they provide COD (Cash on delivery, easy returns, discounts almost 12 months, now no waiting for the EOSS to arrive, shop when you want, what you want, where you want. But wait.. It still is not smart shopping. There are websites that provide discount coupons of every online shopping portal which adds up to the already discounted item. Now that’s smart shopping.

CouponRani is one such tremendously helpful website which adds feather to my shopping experience.


My recent Haul:

I recently purchased catwalk bellies from Flipkart that too at 45%percent discount. Now you would think that when you can get 40% discount on Catwalk shoes at your nearest mall they why take the risk of shopping it online. Right? Well I tell you why, When shoes are on huge discounts at stores, they are not fresh, mostly display pieces, which are as bad as your decade old pair of shoe!! With no fresh shining leather but dull dusty almost worn-out piece, that’s the problem I always face at stores thereby end up buying either fresh or on 10-20% discount, because they usually have new pieces of that. So Thanks to, as it provides Coupons, I could not stop myself from ordering it and it was delivered within 3 days. Brand new pieces at this prize WOAH!! I have shopped many times on Flipkart, I have also bought Babyliss hair straighter, and I have had it for couple of years now and it’s rocking 🙂 (Refer

I have also shopped at The best thing about Yebhi is, Its returning policy, it is the most convenient one, I bought a pair of FILA sandals for my brother but he wanted ADIDAS, so all I did was mention it to them over their Facebook Customer care and they took care of it.. And viola I got ADIDAS! It was super easy, no hassle of calling them and all. Besides that I have purchased and Bombay Dyeing bed-sheets. They are very good with their service and quick with delivery. (Refer

Well when I shop at mall, I spend my whole day and by the end I treat myself there with some yummy food. Now, you must be worried about missing out on that experience, Right? Well I have a solution, has coupon codes for Domino’s & today itself I was lucky to avail the benefit of ‘Buy 1 get 1 free’, God bless Freaky-Friday and for this yummilicious treat. 🙂 (Refer to avail such Delicious Deals)

  5. LOVE the shoes you bought, Ankita! And I loved this post too. Very useful. I must admit that I am a little unsure when it comes to buying clothes and shoes online. I use online shopping predominantly for books but with all the advantages you’ve mentioned (most of which seem very appealing to me) I won’t hesitate to buy other stuff as well. These discounts sites look good too. Thank you for sharing and happy shopping! 😀

  7. Fantastic goods from you, man. I’ve consider your stuff previous to and you’re simply too great.

  8. Shopper Approved is based on the powerful concept called ‘social proof’,
    which states that:

    When a potential customer goes online to buy a product or service,
    they actually want and actively
    look for reassurance that they’re making the right decision. And the way they get that
    assurance is
    from other customers’ ratings, feedback, and reviews.

    This is why statistically, 77% of online shoppers turn to consumer reviews before they decide to buy!

    There’s a reason why Amazon, eBay, Sears, and pretty much every other major ecommerce site have customer
    ratings and reviews integrated into their website. It’s because online reviews
    have been proven to increase
    conversion, increase average transaction amounts,
    improve customer satisfaction, and even lower product
