Question to All Online Shoppers

Maybe this is my small-town, grew up bargain-hunting background talking, but does anyone out there--anyone--sort things by price "high to low" when they're online shopping?

Just curious.


  1. I have done that. Sometimes, when you are shopping for something like a PDA, all kinds of low-priced PDA accessories will appear on the list first if you go low-to-high. Therefore, I invert the sort and scroll down.

  2. I guess it makes sense for that. It just seems like the occasions to use it are so rare. I think the only time I really use it, I guess, is when I'm goofing off on some site like Tiffany's, and I'm thinking, "Hmm, let's see if anything here is actually more expensive than my house...."


If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
