With one of the busiest shopping weekends upon us, on Day 21 of “Thankful November”, I just have to say how grateful I am for online shopping.
Now before I go any further, I will tell you that I love going shopping on Black Friday. And bless my husband – he’ll go with me! We make it fun by starting real early Friday morning – we don’t go all-night. We bring snacks, play Christmas music, and plan what the activities or events we want to do and see during the upcoming holidays. But with that said I do most of my shopping online.
I LOVE online shopping! If I can order what I need and have it delivered to me? Um – YES! Shopping this way leaves me some free time to do other things like going to the beach, spending time with family, doing something fun, etc. With a busy schedule, this is certainly a blessing.
So many stores offer online shopping, and I always encourage family members and friends to take advantage of it. Now we have local stores where you can shop online then pick up your order. Another win for getting on the computer and placing that order. We use that service for three local stores, and once again, it is a time saver.
Another plus with online shopping is that you don’t overspend (usually – LOL!). I know for me, when ordering online, I select what I need and proceed to checkout. No tempting little objects to catch my eye. I will say that Amazon is pretty tricky about putting those extras “somethings” on the checkout page but I usually have the willpower to ignore them.
If you haven’t tried online shopping for most of your needs, give it a try. I think you might like it!
What are you thankful for today?
