Stephanie said:

I don’t use online shopping… hardly ever unless I have to.. I would rather have something in my hand when I buy it instead of having to wait for it to arrive. Sad huh!

Meg said:

I don’t really have a favorite online store, it’s just where ever I find the best deal and/or find what I want.


Charlotte (Charmed Life) said:

i don’t have a favorite but i tried amazon before. i usually don’t shop online or thru a catalog, because i find myself always disappointed when the items arrive.

DebMomOf3 said:

I don’t shop much online, if at all - I like seeing and touching what I’m buying in person if possible. I shop mostly at Target, Kohl’s and Meijer (local to the midwest). Sometimes at WalMart too, but not as often.

Sher :) said:

I’d have to say I love books! But I’ve actually done a lot of my Christmas shopping from there. I love buying on line. You have to be careful, but it makes it so easy. Plus, the only store I have in my small little town besides Walmart is Bealls and it’s about the size of one department of a real store. :)
