O.k.. I admit it.. I love to shop! Retail Therapy has always made me happy and I often found any excuse to hit the stores.
A year ago I joined Amazon Prime to save money on shipping and it became so much more! Here is an example of how I use Amazon on a regular basis. The other day I decided I needed a 5x7 frame for a picture of my son’s wedding. Usually I would get in the car and drive to the store.. finding that they didn’t really have what I was envisioning but I would end up purchasing other items that I just couldn’t live without! Right???? On Amazon I found a huge selection of exactly what I was looking for at a competitive price and my free shipping.
I wasn’t distracted by items I didn’t need.. it took no time at all to make my selection and arrived at my door! Yes we are all busy and for me the time I save by using Amazon and the money I save by not being tempted to purchase things I don’t need is HUGE!
Now I use that extra time to spend it with my family, a good book or some other form of enjoyment and when I do need some Retail Therapy I can do it for pleasure and not out of need. I know it sounds crazy but Amazon has really made a difference in my life!
