Sample Answer

We all purchase new things for various purposes every now and then. In my family, my parents do most of the shopping ranging from grocery to expensive items. I also buy different things as per my interest and I have recently bought a microwave for my home from my savings. It is a piece of electronic equipment for kitchen purposes.

Last Sunday, I was roaming around in a shopping complex nearby my home, when I saw a pamphlet advertising a heavy discount on many electronic products such as televisions, refrigerators and microwave ovens in a shop on the second floor of the complex. I decided to have a look at the products they had to offer. I went inside the shop and found many products being sold at amazing deals, but I decided to buy a microwave. It was available at a thirty percent discount bringing it within my budget. I was happy as I thought about its usage and practicality in my home.

After some thinking and being satisfied with the product, I purchased it and took it home as a surprise. Everyone in my family was pleased as they could use it to reheat food or snacks or make coffee or tea at any time in a hassle-free manner. My mother was especially elated as it would help her to make hot and fresh food without fretting in the kitchen for long periods of time. I was happy that I had purchased this microwave for my household and that it would be useful for everyone.
