I have made a promise to myself this Christmas. I am doing ALL my xmas shopping online this year - i feel exhausted just thinking about hitting the big shopping centres.
It will take forever to find a carpark, a have to fight my way through crowds of people, stand forever in checkout lines, lug it all back to the car (hurting my arms in the process) then watch as 5 people try and swoop on the carpark im about to leave. Ahhhh - its all too hard. When i can sit in the comfort of my own home (rain, hail or shine), with a glass of wine in one hand, and leisurely browsing sites to find the perfect gifts.
dont leave home
no carparking headaches
relax and browse in comfort
non reliant on weather
no waiting in queues
drink wine while shopping (considered illegal in most shopping centres)
delivered to your door - often gift wrapped
have to do hair, makeup and get mentally prepared to hit the shops
tears & tantrums looking for carparks
sore limbs, screaming kids and trolley injuries
less than pleasant experience in the rain
looooong checkout lines with people pushing in
pack it in the car, take it out of the car, wrap it, label it and place under tree..
