For Love of (internet) Shopping

I love to shop for just the right gift for just the right price.  I especially love to shop online, because I can wear yoga pants and fuzzy socks and shop from home.  Also, there is no search engine at the mall.  How can I quickly find the stores that have the item in my brain for the best price without a search engine?

And you know I'm not going to come home from the mall without a stop at Aunt Annie's for a Almond pretzel which has who knows how many calories.

I love free shipping and online coupons and discounts and comparison shopping from site to site.  And "window" shopping online is awesome, you can add items to your cart and you don't have to put them back, you can just walk away - I would never do that in the store.  You can log off and not spend a dime. 

Finding just the right gift is so much easier online and you don't have to dig through bins and racks.  One day I went to The Wal-Mart - not my favorite store - the DVDs weren't even alphabetical. Really? I took a quick look and said forget it, I'm not going to look through every movie on this rack, I'll just buy it from amazon.com.

And I did - on Blu-Ray  -  for $7.99



Another  recent find - A John Deere tractor FLASHLIGHT!  Kids LOVE flashlights!  And my nephew loves tractors, perfect!  (also amazon.com)


Squeeze of the trigger activates engine sounds and turns on light, auto shut off, free rolling wheels


And on a totally different wave length.  I find all sorts of awesome natural and stone silver pendants on ebay, like this brecciated onyx.  I've purchased several pieces from ana-silver-co on ebay and have always been pleased with their products and service.




This pendant and the beautiful earrings are from our friend Jenny's etsy shop











I know some people like to touch and feel and try on before they buy, but I just really LOVE to shop from my computer.


Happy Shopping,

Laura
