I am Thankful for Online Shopping

This morning I went online and purchased a memory foam mattress topper to replace our old one. We have had the old one for over ten years and it has recently disintegrated on my side. Cheryl’s side is still like new. My friends will not offer alternative interpretations of this certain design flaw.

I have done most of my shopping online for years: computers, cameras, small appliances, other electronics, my lawn mower, gifts of all kinds, etc.. The reviews and customer ratings are helpful if you take the time to carefully review them. The price comparisons provide confidence I’m getting a good deal and often there are no taxes. All together I saved $600 on my mower even after paying for shipping.

Of course the best thing about online shopping is I can do it in my recliner. There is no driving from store to store, no hunting for a parking place, and no crowds. And the coup de grace, there are no sales people.

OH how we think alike on this one!

I LOVE my online shopping privileges..Overstock.com is one of my dearest friends. Amazon.com and I have had this "fling" for years.....

Yes, yes, YES. And I completely agree about the "sales people" part....
