Now, I may just be a little slow. Maybe you've discovered this already.
I have tried to do some shopping online, but I just get lost. I don't have a clue how to find what I'm looking for with only a single (or double) click. My friends, you have just GOT to check out www.shopwiki.com! They actually do all your homework for you. The site is divvied up and makes shopping online incredibly easy and the site itself is so user friendly that even my techno-slow husband would be able to do it! (Hint hint...) And if your winters are anything like ours here, shopping online is the way to go. It can be done in your warm bathrobe and fuzzy slippers with a coffee at one elbow and a box of chocolates at the other. (Did I mention you can buy chocolate there too?)
Are you looking for shoes? You find the style you want (all pictured and priced) and you simply click "See all stores" and voila! It is a simple one click to get back to the directory to search out the next item on your wish list. You can shop by item category, recipient, holiday, seasonal, and even environmentally friendly!
My favorite part on this site is the area for ideas themselves! You simply select any occasion, from regular holidays, birthdays, etc, to their "Apology Gifts" option. I love this. They give you some marriage saving, I screwed up, gift giving tips. They even categorize your mistake from little bitty to absolutely massive! If you go to their Christmas ideas screen, they have actually taken the online shopping to a new level with ways to make your Christmas gift giving easier, both practically and financially. That alone tells me that it is a site you should add to your favorites!
