    It's so much easier and takes less time to hunt for something electronically over the Internet machine than it is to drive from store to store looking for a comparable item.  Driving, finding a parking space, walking through a store looking all takes time and money, where hunting with a few mouse clicks at home costs nothing but an ISP connection.

      I shop online a lot because I know exactly what I'm looking for, and it's faster to google on it or go to the store website where I know they'll have it.  PLUS - I can do it at midnight in my pajamas.

      No burning up valuable daylight hours driving around (often a ridiculous distance), then wandering around hoping they have what I want. No dealing with store personnel (who seem to either hound you mercilessly or ignore you completely).

      Even if I do end up going to a store, I usually "pre-shop"online for it.  That's because I hate the shopping experience and need it over as quickly as possible when I'm there.

      I swear, they pipe something into the air that gives me a headache at the mall.
