I don’t usually visit online stores because when I do, I end up either brokenhearted or envious, lol! I don’t want to see so many wonderful things sold online when I know it’s not on my budget to buy one. I usually just go to online stores when I know I needed to.
I haven’t shopped much online but when I do, it’s always via Lazada. It was my one stop shop before because I loved their small kitchen appliances. Just earlier this year, I also bought a 64 GB microSD card from then and some set of decorative pans for Nate’s pancakes.
What I love about Lazada is that you can shop in one click, very true to its words about “effortless shopping”. They’re website is user-friendly, they’re categorized nicely plus (of course) the search button you can use right when you need it! And let’s not forget the unending discounts they offer online 24/7!
If you don’t have a credit card (just like me), you don’t have to worry, you can always arrange cash on delivery with Lazada as your mode of payment. Cash on delivery payments give me an added peace of mind since you don’t really give your money out until you have the product in your possession. Plus, they deliver right at your doorstep, that’s a sigh of relief for busy WAHMs like me.
Just recently, I visited their website again and I found so many amazing products I wish I could all buy! lol! But of course, I have to consider our finances. I can’t just buy now without adding it on my budget list, Dane and I are in a very tight budget as we’re wanting to save more before he comes back home so I’m careful with what I buy.
But there are things that you just can’t resist, they’re mouth watering (if they’re food! lol!). So, for now, I have 5 things on my wishlist, all I found in Lazada. Let’s start with the cheapest one! haha.
1. Rose C White 1000mg tablet bottle of 60
Good health is always our “puhunan”. We are unproductive when we’re sick so we always need a boost on our immune system. It’s not easy when someone in the family is sick, it’s expensive, it’s a waste of time and it’s frustrating. I’ve mentioned this before, let me say it again, last week, Nate was so sick due to coughs and it wasn’t easy for all of us here at home. I had to take him to the doctor and have him checked, bought medicines, I even bought a nebulizer for him, all aren’t originally on my budget. So, I’m sure everyone can agree on me that getting sick is really expensive. haha. I thank God he’s finally well. I doubled his dose of Vitamin C to strengthen his immunity even more and it helped him recover.
Work-at-home-moms like me (or may I say all moms like me), need vitamin C so we all don’t get sick right away, it’s the last thing we want. So yes, this is definitely on my wishlist and I’m adding this to my budget list for my next pay so I can buy it. lol.
It doesn’t just have vitamin C, it also has antioxidants and helps relieves symptoms of colds and stress. This is affordable and is already worth a 2-month supply of vitamin C, it’s perfect to leave on the medicine cabinet for all the members of the family to use!
2. Cutie Jazz Drum Toy Set
When you become a parent, there’s not a time that you won’t think about your kids when shopping! lol! Nate is “in-love” with musical instruments. Maybe he got it from Dane and I since we’re both into music as well. Of course, drums are not an exemption to this! lol! When we go to church, there’s no way Nate is not playing the drums! It’s one of the things that make him happy. He can stay in the drums for a very long time!
This lovely drum set comes with large tom tom, 2 small tom toms, 2 drum sticks, 1 Stanchion, and 1 Cymbal. What I like about this is that it’s portable, easy to install and it’s for 3-5 year olds, I’m already imagining Nate enjoying this one! The moment I saw this, I immediately shared it to Dane and told him I’m definitely buying this drum set when my pay comes! I bet it’ll be an awesome addition to Nate’s guitar (I bought a small guitar for him before as well). If I get it now, I get Php 400 off the regular price! Isn’t that amazing?
3. Educational Wooden Toys
I want to be holistic when it comes to Nate’s learning. I am trying to lessen his “screen time” by getting real toys and making him more physically active as possible. When choosing toys, I most often opt on educational products that he can enjoy while learning. And with this product perfect for the age range of 2-4, it’s a perfect gift for Nate on his 2nd birthday in May.
This educational toy will certainly make learning fun while our kids are also learning. Not only that, wooden toys also keep our kids away from harmful plastics that most often contain BPA that can harm our little ones. It looks like this is at 57% off this time, that’s really a great saving for me!
4. Enya EF-18 Acoustic Guitar
When it comes to musical instruments, it’s the guitar that I can play well the most. I don’t know how long I’ve been dreaming of buying an acoustic guitar for myself, all I know is that it’s been years since I dreamed of buying my own guitar! lol. One of the reasons I couldn’t buy is because every now and then, there are more important things I needed to spend my money for. Not only that, Dane already has his own acoustic guitar in KSA that he will take with him when he comes home, plus Nate has a small guitar that I can use when I want to play as well.
However, I can’t deny that deep inside me, is still a longing to be able to buy I guitar I can call my own. 🙂 What I love about this guitar is its color, and I like that it’s not round, its body has a curve that can make you reach higher notes. Also, the price is affordable for me, compared to those I usually see in the stores.
5. DSLR Camera
Not everyone knows because I’m hesitant to share, but I’ve been joining an online course with foundation in photography and I’m starting to learn more about cameras and capturing shots but I couldn’t practice so much because I don’t have a DSLR, it’d be really great to be able to have one. Well, I’m kindda torn between a GoPro and a DSLR but at this time, with the course I am taking and the skills I want to learn, a DSLR is the way to go for me. I choose this product because it’s the cheapest that I see in there, lol! And it’s got freebies too, who doesn’t want freebies anyway? haha.
As a beginner, I don’t really need a camera with like the awesomest feature there is, that might be useless for beginners like me. I want to be better in taking photos not only because I’m a blogger but because I want to be able to capture more and more wonderful photos with my love ones. This is the most expensive item on my wishlist but I am hoping I’d be able to save some money to buy a DSLR for myself. I wish I could get it now since it’s at oozing 15% off!
Have you shopped at Lazada recently? What are your favorite picks? What’s on your wishlist? I’d be happy to know. 🙂
