Loving My Single Life - Shopping By Phone

Updated on August 1, 2011

Shopping by Mobile Phone

When mobile phones became popular with the feature of a camera, I thought to myself, what on earth does one need a camera on their phone for? I was never much of a photo taker before this time so toting a camera around 24/7 didn’t hold much merit to me.

Now, however when selecting a phone, if it has less than five megapixels I don’t even give it a second glance. I think now, how could I live without my Android II. It has become my social connection. I can yahoo chat on my phone. I interact with my friends on Facebook. I could tweet if I was into Twitter. Alas, I take photos nearly wherever I go. Just about all of the photos that come with my blogs are taken with my Android phone.

Wait! Don’t stop reading. I promise this is not a press release article for The Android. It’s about how the camera in my phone has revolutionized shopping for me. You see, now when I window shop and see something I love, I take a photo of it and the price tag. The next day I can look at the picture and see if I am still in love with it. If I am, I start my saving for the item and if not the photo of the item gets deleted. I was on a drive with my sister and her fiancée and we passed this lovely house I just had to get a picture of. I think perhaps after Dwayne Johnson and I marry we can build a house just like it to live in.

Then there is shopping for clothes. Once upon a time I had a younger sister that I shopped with regularly. Well she has since gotten engaged and her time is very limited. Well at least with me. I smile. I wouldn’t have it any other way but the great thing is she can still shop with me even when she is with her man. Look at the example below. I found three great outfits, at the right price that fit me as perfectly as I could ever want. I needed to conference with my sister as to the best choice. So thanks to MMS, I was able to snap a picture of myself in the dressing room mirror and send them to her.

See in today’s world, one can be alone, but not. Oh, and if you’re wondering we both choose the red suit. Yes, I am so, Loving My Single Life.
