My Five Reasons Why I Shop Online For The Holidays

2:16 AM

1.Options. It's Clothing Optional, Shampooed hair Optional, and most importantly public parenting skills Optional.

2. Less likely to incur or inflict bodily harm to self and/or children. Have you ever seen a mom reading her shopping list while trying to stop her kids from fighting, screaming, and or breaking things she’ll never be able to afford? Its not pretty!

3.Less prep to get to store. No need for keys, diaper bag, treats to bribe your kids with, change of kids clothing in case they pee their pants, dressing your kids in proper seasonal clothing so other mommy’s don’t shake their heads at you in passing, purse filled with anything-that-can-happen-will-happen supplies, and or finding a baby sitter so you can spend the afternoon worrying and missing your kids.

4. Parking. I don’t even know if we should get me started on this one. Okay, so my husband and I have basically agreed that I pretty much have adult ADD. So remembering where I parked the car is always an adventure for me, and not one Id like to go on often. This is one of those things that I just know someone upstairs is getting a big kick out of watching me go through. This alone tells that heavenly father does have a sense of humor.

5. Search Box Vs, Store Assistants. Hmmm…

Oh, and this is probably going to be my husband and me in 10 years... maybe less.

  2. Oh my God, you are sooo right! I am so sad I live in a Country where the online shopping didn't develop all this much... There is always hope... ;)

  3. I totally agree. Also lots of times I can find a discount code online where if bought in the store would have cost more.

    Stopping by from SITS, have a great day.

  9. Really funny post! I particularly liked the 'public parenting skills' remark, lol.

    Stopping by from SITS to say hello!

  10. ... but you miss all the festive holiday fun! I love shopping, I love the decorations, the crowds, the music, the ambiance! Just thinking about it makes me smile!

  11. Just stopping by from sits to say hello. I love amazon, I basically buy everything from there because most of the time its cheaper and you get free shipping, so you dont even have to spend gas! If you need to buy someone a gift, you dont have to take it to the post office and box it up, they will do that for you and again free shipping!

    Come stop by my blog sometime! :)

  12. I prefer online shopping for the holidays also... but sometimes there is nothing like the hunt of that one hard to find toy and mowing the other shoppers down, just for the hope on christmas morning your child will light up and think you are the best mommy in the world. My children usually just say its the wrong one.

  13. Laughing out loud! I agree with every one of your reasons, and have got to find a copy of that carton to hang up at home! I really enjoyed looking around your lovely blog! Motherhood, my movie about a mom blogger, is coming out soon. I’d love for you to check out my blog! Hope to see you there soon!

  14. Online shopping rocks! I love your list and agree with every single reason! I pretty much HATE going "real" shopping anymore, mostly because of the awful service and crowds.

  15. I LOVE shopping online for Christmas. I find much better bargains and hardly ever have to pay shipping. There are always great coupon codes available.
