Shopping and saving...
My mother does not understand why I shop so much online. She has not yet wrapped her head around the convenience of online shopping. Whenever I see her she is always asking me where I found this or that item. The answer almost always is that I bought the item online. In her mind I can't possibly be saving money because I must be paying for shipping as well as the item. I have tried to explain the concept of using dropdowndeals promo codes but I might as well be speaking Chinese. It doesn't make sense to her that I can save tons of money and time by using promo codes online. Most of the items I buy online cost less than they would at my local store even with the cost of shipping. Sometimes I even find codes for free shipping and the item at a discounted price. I would rather spend a few minutes looking for an item online and get exactly what I am looking for than drive around town with the hopes of finding that item. I love to support local business but only have so much time and money to spend on extras. Shopping online allows me maximize my spending dollars.
