By cutting the middle man out of any transaction, you cut out a big chunk of change that can be passed on to the customer, which makes them happy and willing to come back and do additional business with a company that offers great savings. By businesses and consumer alike, the Internet is the best tool to hit us all since the all the railroads were built and connected to each other all over the country.
In the 1990′s, I never would have thought that I would be ordering good quality but low cost glasses by way of the World Wide Web. Now I don’t give it a second thought. I find that if I can’t find a good deal online, only then do I try the old traditional brick and mortar businesses and stores, but only as a last resort. I really can’t remember the last time I wished that I had not tossed all the paper yellow pages and the white and black local phone books directly into the paper/cardboard recycling bin as soon as they landed on the front porch or the end of the drive way, each year.
I can’t wait to see how my new glasses look on me. Hopefully they will be here in a timely fashion and look fabulous. Usually I just go with the same basic shape and size, but this time I am pushing myself just a bit over my comfort zone and trying something a bit different. It would really be devastating to put them on, look in the mirror and totally be disappointing with what I saw staring back at me. I’ll keep you all posted on how they look.

I don’t know what I would do with out my slow cooking Crock Pot, now that I have figured out so many ways to use it, I find myself pulling it out from under the counter more and more as time goes by. Today was a perfect day to put it to use, they way it spills the aroma all through out the house is just wonderful and keeps everyone from wondering too far from the house come dinner time, that puts a smile on my face.
My sister hit the nail right on the head this time folks for sending me the link to blueskyscrubs.com. I was complaining that I was having a really difficult time finding the right kind of summer clothing to wear during this extremely hot and very humid summer. I go through phases (much like most of us do) and this year I was really stumped as to what was best for me at this point in my life. Wearing shorts just doesn’t fell right any more now that I’m over 30. I still have a decent looking pair of legs mind you, but if the shorts are just at the right length it cuts my legs all wrong and I look like I have a set of sticks that I’m walking on. And that perfect length seems a bit too short for my taste these past couple of years.
Last year I was all about wearing all these wonderful summer sun dresses that I found at various thrift stores during the winter months, marked way, way down, super clearance cheap. Anyway that worked out well except that the majority of them don’t have any sleeves and my shoulders get really cold and I end up having to carry and wear a sweater all the time, which is a pain in the rear having to deal with, but definitely worth the hassle in the long run.
So this year my sister told me to check out some of the medical uniform stores and see if I could find a couple of sets of the nice looking scrubs that so many of our medical professionals are wearing to work. At first I thought she was just a tad bit off her rocker, but after thinking about it and actually looking at the link that she sent me I decided to give it a try and found two sets, that were on sale of course, and placed my order. I didn’t qualify for the free shipping, but you can bet that my next order will. I all ready have a few items saved in my shopping bag for next year!
It really beats the heck out of looking in the old fashioned yellow pages, being able to go online and type something like for example: “for a raleigh house cleaning service“ and come up with an interesting website entitled The Other Woman! I have always enjoyed interesting and entertaining names of things. With so much competition for just about any and all types of products and services, it makes a difference when you have a name that intrigues them.
Running from store to store to find tools and tool related products I have been relying more and more to the Internet, and Reid Supply seems to work best for me at this point for the majority of items I have needed the past couple of years. Now that the holidays are all over and done with it is back to getting household maintenance and chores taken care of. While the weather is so cold outside it is the perfect time to get a good amount of the inside tasks taken care of.
Just think only 11 more weeks until winter is over. Next thing you know it will be spring and getting busy with all of the spring time cleaning and gardening that comes along with the warmer and drier weather. I for one can’t wait for the wet and cold weather to be well behind us all the sooner the better.
