    These days, it has become increasingly popular to go for shopping in one’s spare time. This phenomenon brings with itself, a set of benefits and drawbacks, as argued by some people. Shopping has become profoundly popular among the young generation. This essay will look at some of the possible causes and it’s impact on individuals and society.

    Shopping, which was seen as a laborious activity specifically done when required, has now become a recreational activity. A considerable amount of people look at shopping as some sort of stress reliever, leisure activity instead of a necessity. In fact, a study shows that shopping leads to release of certain chemicals in your brain that significantly boosts your mood, thus getting more inclined towards shopping. Shopping has become prevalently popular with the commencement of several schemes and campaigns, launched by several online shopping platforms, in order to attract costumers. Costumers can take benefits of these schemes at the comfort of their homes, allowing them to purchase their preferable products at reasonable prices with maximum profits to both the company and costumers.

    While shopping can be used as a reliable source of stress reliever if done within limits, it surely has downsides if done beyond the limit.

    Comfort and convenience of online shopping platforms has resulted in much more inclination towards unnecessary shopping, where people often get tempted to purchase products they don’t need, resulting in unnecessary expenses. In the long run, this is an undesirable situation where one spends much more they can afford to. On the contrary, increasing popularity of shopping is extremely beneficial for the shopping stores and online shopping platforms, who are profited by increase in sales. Purchasing products is also beneficial for the country’s economy as it keeps the money flowing, which increases the overall GDP of a nation. The more the demand for products, the more will be the generation of products. And the more the generation of services and products, the more will be the GDP of the nation, thus resulting in greater economy.

    In conclusion, shopping can certainly be seen as a fruitful activity for everyone, if one beings mindful of their spending. A good market keeps the money flowing and boosts the economy of the country.

      *”and it’s (its) impact on individuals and society.”

      * Some adjectives and adverbs sound a bit unusual with the nouns that they accompany e.g. “prevalently popular”.

      *”thus getting more inclined towards shopping

      * I assume that the sentence starting with “While shopping can be used as” was meant to be a part of the second body paragraph and not a separate paragraph.

      *”If one beings mindful of their spending” (the ‘beings’ in this sentence does not seem correct. Perhaps you meant ‘If one is mindful…”

      * Word choice and sentence structure, although free from serious errors, can still be improved.

      * “in these days” (the ‘in’ is not needed here. “Shopping is popular these days” would be sufficient)

      *”the reasons of its popularity” (‘the reasons for its popularity’ would be better)

      * “Due to the trend of online shopping , it becomes even more famous” (‘It has become even more popular’ is what I would use)

      *”Some online websites provide a good amount of discounts on products ,that lead to enhance the sell of the products.” ( ‘good amount of discounts’ does not collocate well. I would use ‘attractive discounts’. “enhance the sell of the products” does not sound right. You probably meant ‘sales’ in the place of ‘sell”)

      *”mostly youngsters influenced by” (youngsters are influenced by)

      *”a busy weekdays” (‘a (adjective) weekdays’ would not work. ‘a busy week’ would work)

      *”weekdays, Shopping” ( ‘shopping’ should not have been capitalized after a comma)

      *”On the other side, excessive of anything is not good” (since ‘excessive’ is an adjective, this sentence would be incorrect. You could say ‘an excess of …” )

      * However, people must make a balance between ” (‘find a balance’ is better than ‘make a balance’)

    Shopping is more popular as a leisure activity. Some people feel that it has advantages and disadvantages. In this essay let us see both sides.

    To begin with, shopping has become popular nowadays. People are more obsessed to groom themselves. Grooming reflects the financial status of the person. They wear footwear which matches their dress. People are not interested to repeat their dress frequently. So many online shopping had a great boom. For every celebration, people decorate their home in the theme related to the festival with decor things. So many businesses has been developing and attained a huge profit. Irrespective of the size of the shops people purchase things if the quality is good. On line shopping made people to buy from their home.

    In addition to that, people spend more money in vain. Even though there is no need to buy things, online shopping induces people’s interest to purchase. It affects people’s saving. Some people are shopaholic and they are purchasing without purpose. Shopping has a more popularity because people started to share their life in social media. In order to avoid recursive dress in the photos they share, they are forced to buy new dresses. This leads people to get loans and youngsters destroy their life by using credit cards and having debts at their young age.

    In conclusion, buying products for need is acceptable. In recent days, people prefer shopping to show case their status. If there was no social media, then shopping would not get this much hype.

      * Make sure you use ‘more’ only when there is an obvious or implied comparison. “She is more intelligent than him”. Using it in a sentence where the comparison is not obvious can cause confusion like “People are more obsessed to groom themselves.” Perhaps, in these sentences you should be using intensifiers like ‘really’ .

      * The verb ‘obsess’ is usually used with ‘with’ e.g. “He is obsessed with ….”

      * Please look up ‘dress’ vs ‘clothes’ , in the third sentence of the first body paragraph, ‘clothes’ or ‘attire’ would have been more apt than ‘dress’.

      * ‘On line’ — ‘online’

      *”So many businesses has been” (have been)

      *If ‘showcase’ is used as a verb, it’s written without any space in between.

      * “pros and cons effects” does not collocate well.
      * The use of ‘enable’ in the second sentence of the first body paragraph is incorrect. Perhaps, you meant to say ‘people are able to’.

      *”online marketing influence individual” (online marketing influences individuals… )

      *”if a person is purchased luxury items” (if a person purchases…)

      *”people, who do not want to buy useless things, have” – The commas here were not necessary at all. Look up ‘relative clause when to use commas)
