This week’s Works for Me Wednesday is an online shopping edition. We are supposed to tell about our favorite places to shop online. Oooh! This should be fun! Unless it is a book store, I hate shopping in stores but really do love shopping online.
Books, Books, Books
By far my favorite place to shop is a bookstore. So, of course, my favorite online shopping would be at an online bookstore. I really like how Amazon and Borders (same website really) have the option to browse through the book online. You can usually see the front and back covers, table of contents, index, and a few pages scattered throughout the book. I really, really love this feature. Since I have a savings card for Barnes and Noble, I find that purchasing books through Barnes and Noble is a bit more cost effective for me. You can find some great deals on books when you shop at these stores online in their bargain books sections. I have been known to purchase about 20 hardback books for around $30 when I browse through the under $5 sections. Check them out and let me know what you think.
Clothing Adult and Children
When shopping for clothing for myself, I like several websites. If you are looking for a new pair of jeans that fit you just right, check out Zafu. The website asks you a series of 8 questions and then finds jeans that will look good on you based on your answers. Zafu can also help you find pants and bras that fit just right.
While I have not personally shopped at Bluefly, they seem to have decent discounts on expensive designer clothing. The prices are still out of my league but you my dear readers might enjoy this site.
For children’s clothing, I love CWDKids. They carry lots of clothes that are great for play. You can find designs on the shirts and dresses that are not the commercialized characters like Dora, Spider Man, etc. The girls clothing is modest while still being stylish. You can find awesome play clothes if you want to match boy/girl twin outfits, which I did almost all the time when my children were younger. While the clothes are not cheap, especially compared to Wal-Mart, Target, and Old Navy, they are not outrageously expensive and they do run pretty good sales occasionally.
Looking for stylish clothes for a low price? Find discounts on clothes online at 15dollarstore, where everything is priced at $15.
Other Miscellaneous Places to Shop Online
Scrapbook.com is a great place to purchase just about any scrapbooking supply you could possibly think of. They have thousands of products.
If digiscrapping is your thing or you are thinking of starting digiscrapping, ScrapGirls is a good company to get you started.
Need something for your kitchen? Need something for a wedding gift? Need to get a gift for a friend who loves to cook? Check out cooking.com. They have so many products and they actually run pretty decent sales from time to time.
Finally, The Sock Company has tons of socks. They have comfy socks, athletic socks, double layer socks, all kinds of socks. I like to purchase 1 specific kind of athletic sock for Mr. Right and me. This way I do not have to fold and match my socks. I just put them all in a lingerie bag and pull out 2 at time to when I need to use them.
