Matching outfits for the fam bam and the pooch too!

Who loves to have matching pjs for the whole family and even your adorable pets? I bet you do, too. I was just browsing those cute prints from LazyOne family pajamas and could not help myself from adding the items to the shopping cart. The loungewear is so pretty, right? They are in fashion since the quarantine took effect.

Our family has been home bound since the government declared quarantine five months ago. My daughter is working from home and is comfortable wearing shirts and pajamas even in daytime. My son, on the other hand, is taking online learning classes twice a week and accepts art commission during his free time. He, too, is comfortable wearing shirts and shorts sets while doing his stuff.

Pajamas are comfortable to wear because they are commonly made of cotton materials and do not feel icky when you perspire.

Checking on their website, LazyOne also carries cute and fun socks. My daughter definitely loves a pair of printed socks. I would be happy to add two more pairs for her and myself to the shopping cart.  

I have got our pooch, a cute bandana as well. Oreo would look good wearing one in his next photo.

We have not tried any of the products from LazyOne just yet but the company touches on some good points, which I think are important before you buy from them.

According to their website, the company only works with factories that have sound environmental policies; the hangers and hang tags they use to display their products are made from recycled or recyclable paper. In addition, the company uses azo-free dyes when coloring or dyeing the fabrics.

It is good to note that pjs and socks are definitely the best gift idea for the coming Christmas season. You do not need to go to the physical shop in order to purchase them. You can all order these items directly from their website. Besides family loungewear sets, they also have something for your house. So, check them out. 

Weighing the need for desktops

My daughter is working from home for two years now.  It’s been her way of life before everyone talks about how they will go about their “new normal” amidst the pandemic.

Late last year, N and her Dad were planning to assemble desktop parts because she thinks she’ll be more productive to use desktop than a laptop.

N is a graphic designer and she finds desktops to be more reliable than the laptop she is currently using.

She said a video adapter can be installed with independent higher memory in desktop plus it can render graphic display faster. With these qualities in mind, N said, she can be more productive in her job.

My son might likely switch to desktop just like his sister.

The community college where K is currently enrolled at is offering distance learning to its old and new students.  And we are adapting to the new norm since the government (still) prohibits face-to-face learning.

The community college is offering desktop rental to students needing them to cope with the demand of the course requirement.  K is taking up multimedia arts and needs a reliable laptop or desktop with fast internet connection for his online classes.

The only thing we worry about is the inevitable increase in electric bill consumption once the purchase of new desktops happens.  

We are looking for new and refurbished desktops at Rakuten. Hubby is weighing which is more practical to buy. We might consider buying online since they offer free shipping for every purchase made.

Look for Online Coupon Codes

Everyone knows that couponing is the way to save money. Back in the day, this involved clipping coupons and taking them in for a much-desired discount. People who enjoy getting deals while shopping sometimes shy away from taking their business online. They think they’ll lose money, won’t find deals, or will pay extra for an item they want. Thankfully these fears are a thing of the past. With coupon codes and other helpful deals, it’s possible to cut down the cost dramatically. Scouting around online shows there’s plenty of deals for the taking thanks to sites dedicated to providing customers with these codes and promos. The best part is the code can be entered right away, allowing the customer to see the discount applied, knowing they don’t have to worry about additional charges getting tacked on later. 

Know What the Options Are When Shopping

Back in the day, people were somewhat limited in what they could buy online. Many times it was simply books, CDs, or other types of media that wasn’t always available in stores. Today that is a thing of the past. It’s possible to order everything, from diapers and computers to fresh food. Even getting items for pets is possible, such as food or medication, allowing folks to shop for dog products online. When planning what to buy online, it’s important to figure out what’s necessary. Some people would rather get items they’re having difficulty finding, while others prefer to take care of all their shopping needs in one place and avoid the hassle of lines and going out. Creating a list of what’s needed and deciding on what type of online shopping expedition can save money. A little preplanning makes life easier, in the long run, allowing buyers to figure out where to purchase from, how to organize buying, and where it’s possible to find the best deals. 

Find Out What Kinds of Shipping Deals Are Offered

Paying outrageous shipping charges is no longer something most people need to worry about. Many companies offer customers special deals on shipping, particularly if they purchase over a certain dollar amount. Depending on the type of product being purchased, the shipping charges might be cheaper than expected. For example, buying fresh food online usually has two-day shipping that usually is cheaper than paying a normal two-day shipping charge. That’s because the company knows it’s important to get fresh food to the customer right away, without dealing with a long waiting period. Other companies might offer deals, such as a free sample, or some other type of benefit that customers might not be aware of. It’s worth it to browse the website or even call customer service and find out what the options are when looking at discounted shipping charges online.

There’s many benefits when it comes to shopping online. From using coupons to save money on deals to getting fast shipping, it’s worth trying for people who are frustrated with their normal shopping expeditions at the store. Shopping online makes it possible to buy everything from food to pet medication, allowing people to outsource their shopping and only pick it up at their mailbox once it’s arrived. If it’s time to stop waiting in line or clipping coupons in hopes of finding a deal, give online shopping a try, and see what it can do.
