    You are particularly heading towards the grocery to find and buy the ingredients for a recipe meal you would like to prepare when suddenly you forgot the name of a particular spice. It is an important part of the recipe and now all you can do is call a friend and ask to check the recipe for you. As clumsy as it may sound, it is very inevitable for somebody to go shopping and forget something sometimes the ones more important. In a situation like this, you spend more time looking for that ingredient which is not ideal especially if you are in hurry. However, there are number of things you can do to avoid such case as well as to save time while doing errands or simply buying your household necessities.

    Be prepared. In whatever situation, being prepared is always helpful in times you encounter unwanted circumstances. For instance, check if you have enough cash or credit before you splurge yourself into shopping whatever that catches your eyes.

    Make a list. Make it a habit to list down all necessary materials you need to buy from hardware to recipes. These areas most likely have the smallest detail that sometimes most people tend to forget when buying. Having yourself ready with that piece of paper prior to going in the department store is useful especially if you are the forgetful kind of person.

    Categorize. While making your list of things to buy, it would be neat if you could actually separate each of them from food, beverages, utensils, hardware, etc. As you know these items are located in different section inside the grocery store. It would cost you less time to find those when you already know what you are looking for.

    Ask for directions. If you are not that familiar with the store and having a hard time looking for that certain item saya powder juice, you can approach the counter or a store keeper to guide you where to find that item.

    An alternative. Always make sure to have an alternative replacement in the absence of particular material or ingredient you wish to buy. It is not a guarantee that all things are available when you shop.

    Bring a bag. Not all stores can provide a handy plastic bag that will accommodate all the things you have just bought. Some stores only wrap things up with a fragile paper bag that might not be strong enough to hold heavy items on your list. Plus bringing an extra bag for excess items would also mean less paper and plastic bags and with this you appear to be environment friendly.

    The listed things are quite obvious and easy to do. You may think of shopping as such a random thing but for those of you who would like to use time efficiently these will certainly work and yet a helpful tool in shopping.

    There are many benefits to shopping as a family. First of all, it is a great way for family members to bond, while having fun at the same time. Even if some of the family members don’t particularly enjoy shopping, they will be more likely to view it as an entertaining adventure than a task, if they’re with their loved ones. Families can try on clothes together, as they assist each other in choosing fashionable outfits. Other people are better able to see exactly how someone else looks in an outfit, and can offer their opinions, which can help save time and money.

    Family members can also participate in other activities together while shopping, especially when choosing a mall as a place to shop. Many malls have video game arcades, movie theatres, and varied special events, such as crafts shows, contests, health fairs, etc. Most malls also have holiday-related activities, such as meals and photos with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, Easter-egg hunts, trick-or-treating and much more, depending on the mall.

    Dining out is one major thing that families do together while shopping. They will certainly work up appetites from all the walking required to shop. Malls are notorious for having family-oriented eateries,’ which consist of large designated dining areas and several restaurants surrounding the dining area. The restaurants vary from Chinese to hamburgers, in case everyone doesn’t want to eat the same thing.

    Lots of large and popular shopping centers also have some pretty elaborate restaurants, as well. This is good if a family chooses to eat at a fancy, sit-down restaurant instead of at the fast food joints that are usually available at the eateries.

    Families don’t have to shop together on a regular basis in order to bond. They can plan special days throughout the year to go on mall outings together. It can be something that everyone looks forward to.

    Shopping together as a family is also a great way to save time. If everyone is together on one outing to the store, then everyone can get what they need at the same time. There is no need to make multiple trips to the same store or waste gas needlessly.

    Even if families don’t choose to shop together at malls, shopping can still be an exciting experience for everyone involved. Wal-Mart, Target, etc. can still be fun places to go with your family. Simply being together and spending quality time with loved ones can make any shopping expenditure extra special, no matter where they go.

    With the internet boom and technological advancement, the world is all operating online today. India being a chief IT player is stepping ahead keeping at pace with the global standards. Online downloads, browsing and online transactions has taken a leap in the past few years in the country. A prominent instance of the same is marked by the emergence and rise of online shopping in India. Buying gifts and other necessities was a western concept that took some time to seep in to the Indian subcontinent. Previously, Indians only used to opt in for online transaction for goods and services that were unavailable in the country. Today, customers purchase online books and gadgets online that can also be secured from the city malls. This shows a remarkable change in the buying behavior of the audience at large.

    One of the reasons why online shopping in India took time to catch up was, the online payment options and the technology used for the same. There were online shopping portals where the third party operations in payment and billing were less stringent. This led to payment complexities and errors that resulted in loss of money. With the development in software and technological applications, the scenario has changed completely. It took time for the customers to let go off their inhibitions and shop at ease. The advent of the cash- on -delivery option however made more and more Indians to shop online.

    However, it is seen that online shopping has steadily increased in the northern, southern and western part of the country, namely the metropolises of Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai. The eastern part, however took time to progress. One of the major reasons was that not every online shopping portal had delivery channels in this part of the country. Today, the eastern region is gradually rising up to online buying and other allied transactions.

    Websites that cater to online shopping in India have several verticals from where customers can choose. The various domains are retail, electronic goods and gadgets, consumer durables and home appliances, fashion and apparel, beauty and wellness, books and paintings and so on. Lifestyle too is a domain that is progressing fast. There are online shopping websites in India that offers lifestyle goods such as scented candles, aromatherapy kits, spiritual and holistic healing kits, essential oils, incense sticks and many more.

    Online shopping in India has allowed several entrepreneurs and dealers too promote their goods across various states and promote their business.

    Almost all shopping carts use a shopping cart database to store their information in. This allows them to easily manage & update all the aspects of your shopping cart such as products, customer reviews, customer information, sales history, stock levels, etc. Without a database managing all the pages in a typical shopping cart would be a nightmare. Databases use a language called SQL which allow you to program questions like “show me all products which cost more than $50 which are available in red”. Fortunately you don’t need to know how databases work to get the advantages of having one.

    …you don’t need to know how databases work to get the advantages of having one

    The most popular databases are listed below, this list covers almost all shopping carts.

    * MySQL. This is the most popular. It’s a fast fairly powerful database with excellent integration with PHP. Being free probably helps its popularity! It’s a good all round choice. osCommerce is an example of a popular shopping cart that uses MySQL.
    * Access. This is the popular Microsoft database that some people may have installed on their computers. The advantage of access is that it’s very easy to deploy & to use. The downside is that if you are expecting a lot of visitors to your shopping cart (thousands a day) it might not handle it so well. A good database for small to medium size sites. Magic Way Shopping Cart uses access.
    * SQL Server. This is Microsoft’s high end database, used to power some of the busiest websites in the world. There’s no doubt this can handle your traffic, and its feature set is excellent. SQL Server can be pricey so web hosts offering SQL Server will often charge a premium of $10 – $20 a month or more, although some good deals can be had. It’s a good choice for heavy duty web sites. ShopDotNet uses SQL Server.

    So what’s the right database for you? The chances are it won’t make much difference unless you are expecting a lot of visitors. If you are committed to a particular web host, check which databases they support as that might restrict your options.
