Last week, one of my husband’s colleagues was checking out my latest Amazon acquisition, a fruit-infused water bottle. The bottle is great because it allows you to put fresh fruit in the center and water all around. This then allows you to drink flavored water all day. I was in love with my new delivery.
At the same time, he also commented on the “thrill” of ordering on Amazon. He said his wife gets so excited to click “Add To Cart”. Just by him mentioning that he needed something, she was quick to order it. I could totally relate. There is a certain rush in buying something on this site. It’s easy, it’s typically exactly what you want, and it gets delivered to your door. It’s awesome.
By writing these blogs and being seen as an Influencer in the current social media world these days, I am fortunate to be clicking “Add To Cart” a few times a week, and most often receiving products for free. I thought that perhaps after some time it would get old. Until now, it hasn’t. I am hearing about friends who also love to order things that they may or may not need.
I’m not sure if Amazon will be the downfall of our economy because everyone will be overspending their budgets. It’s not surprising that Amazon is an American company and it is this country that is known for increasing debt and spending beyond their means.
Until that happens, I am keeping the app on my phone which allows me to more easily order items. I am just going to keep an eye on the amount that I spend on the site in order to keep it all in balance.
