...shopping that is!
I officially started my Christmas shopping today....from the privacy of my own home.....from the comfy coziness of my ergonomically correct desk chair. And, it all happened with the click of a mouse.
One of my favorite ways to shop is through Amazon*.
I have a "wish list" set up on their website and as I see things throughout the year, I add them to my list. Then when special occasions roll around, the saved item is right there, waiting to be purchased. I'll usually do a little online comparison shopping to ensure that Amazon has the best price; if not, I'll note the other location and take into account their shipping costs. Most of the items, that Amazon sells, have FREE standard shipping (when you have a minimum purchase of $25).
There is an air of anticipation as you await your parcel. Even though I've ordered a gift for someone else, there is still a thrill, an expectancy for the arrival of my package; be it large or small. The sound of a delivery truck pulling up in front of the house sets my heart astir. If I'm quick enough, I can yell out a hearty "thank you" and give a broad wave before they get back into their truck. Nothing says Christmas like the little brown box with the sweeping arrow; or is it a smile?
Now my wait begins....but it won't be long......they reported 2 - 5 days!
Joy in the start of the holiday shopping!
