Browse, search, enter, scroll. We all do it, we all over-do it, to be fair. We stumble upon things we never knew we wanted or needed, or never even considered might have been an option in the first place. To our endless appetite’s satisfaction and to our bank account’s displeasure, for the most part, we end up giving in to the visual craving and signing up for more than we expected.
Which is not a bad thing, by the way. I’ve never heard anyone complain for having ‘too much’ or wanting ‘some more’ or regretting an instinctive buy. Sometimes, those impulsive and spur of the moment consumptions end up being the most fulfilling.
Picture this. It’s time to start planning your summer holidays. I know, right? So many options, so much disagreement and hassle as to what would be the ideal destination for everyone. Should it be local, should it be sunny, should it be quiet, should be it adventurous? But, let’s face it, the one factor that’s always the deciding one is how pocket-friendly that vacation will be.
So, the browsing and the researching begin. There are boundless of choices for websites, destinations, reviews; the mind boggles. But suddenly, while seamlessly scrolling, something catches your eye in the corner of this one page.
