I will admit shopping is one of my least enjoyable chores. When I read 10 yrs ago that the trend to internet shopping was growing, this wise man said, NO WAY! Well I have become a believer because I have found I do not mind shopping at all, when it is on the internet.
(A few more ‘3’s’)
I am bringing this subject up because I saw a truck the other day with the following sign painted on its side: “Order on the net and we deliver groceries to your door.”
I am not going to say I will never do that because I have modified my beliefs and attitudes many times in the past few years.
My latest shopping spree was for three motor home tires. The delivery fee was $50 a tire from California. BUT buying them locally would be from $600 to $700 a tire. We bought 3 for about $800 and paid $145 for a man to come to our house and mount them. If you do the math that is $315 per tire delivered and mounted at our homeport. Around 1/2 price.
I have bought car parts, parts for the washer and dryer, books, camera, camping gear, cars and the craziest, a house. So far I have not been disappointed or felt cheated.
The house was sort of a stupid buy, but it has worked out well. I know full well pictures do not tell the whole story and I tried to allow for that, but not enough.
I do have one separate card that I use for the internet, and so far that has worked well. We use cards fairly often but never accumulate a balance that goes over to the next month, the file is paid off monthly. I am not a fan of interest, unless we are earning it.
Do you buy over the internet?
When I was a kid, Grocery stores would deliver to your home and put it on your bill to be paid weekly or bi-weekly according to your paydays.
Would you buy your groceries over the net?
Life seems to be one BIG shopping spree.
We attended the funeral of a good friend Janie Lingerfelt today. When we left the church this is what she was headed to the cemetery in. this is a 1949 Packard hearse. She rode in Class for her last trip on earth, as we are to day
