Online Shopping

M_Id_449279_Shopping_dicountI often struggle to exercise self-restraint

Temptations are plenty, and I am no saint

When online retailers hold their surprise sales

E-mailing reminders, any attempt at restraint fails

Seventy percent off is too good to ignore

It’s a good time to update my wardrobe some more

Being good at arithmetic, I can calculate

Quite quickly the reduced price, and satiate

Myself with the victory of having scored a good deal

A savvy shopper and a fashionista- that’s how I feel

Ignoring that small admonishing voice within my head 

“This money could be used for necessary items instead”

Granted, gorgeous items were found at prices unbeatable

Buying them, though not essential, did seem reasonable

I wait for items to go on sale, so that I can buy

What I like; I hate paying full-price, I can’t deny

It is so simple to order stuff online

Just a few clicks, no need to even sign

Online shopping is a boon and a curse

It has certainly loosened the strings of my purse!
