Ever since the lockdown started, online shops paved the way and became the one-stop-shop for many. Buying things online became a part of everyone’s lives during the quarantine, and “adding to cart” became a habit. When the coronavirus entered our country, going outside was prohibited and scary, and the thought of stepping out without knowing if you had contact with someone carrying the virus is appalling. Thankfully, there are online shops that got what we need. From groceries, food, skincare, to school essentials, all of these are accessible online.
Not only that, but online selling platforms like Shopee and Lazada are conducting the most anticipated monthly sales that they call “double double sale” where they sell all the products at a discounted price, depending on the date and the corresponding number of the month. It was just recently when they held a 10.10 sale that made everyone ~splurge~ on some home necessities and school essentials.
And since there’s a new schooling system for this academic year, classes are now being held online. Which means, students are not allowed to go to school or outside as much a possible.
