What Was the Last Thing You Bought Online?

What was the last thing you bought online? There have been lots of blogs about a census report and an accompanying chart/graph that shows an increase in online buying. While online real estate searches are primarily done to gather information, there are lots of things being bought online.

The report indicates that online purchases of almost everything other than prescription drugs are increasing. The stats reported indicate that smaller ticket items are what people are most comfortable with. And of course, there is much debate over the source and accuracy of the charts.

It does seem that online purchases are increasing. What was the last thing your bought online?

Ok....fun post! My 14-year old went to DC on a spring break trip and bought Confederate Money Replicas. We went to Walmart to find frames for them and then realized we were missing the set of "C" currency he was sure he bought. So I found it online, bought it....spent $2 on the package and $5 on the shipping. THEN, he actually looked in his room as I had asked, and found it. Sooooo we have 2 sets.

Books and small dollar items seem to be high in the list.

I shop A LOT on-line. I purchase skin care items & cosmetics which are usually around 50% less than a brick & mortar store. I also purchase books & electronics. My husband purchases a lot of our pet care items and much of his sporting goods.

Sporting goods are interesting. It must be a good deal to include the shipping, etc.
