Shopping revolution

There is a revolution going on out there! And it is for your shopping dollar $$. Every business is getting involved. From Wal*Mart to Amazon.

My shopping list had "TP" on it. Which is toilet paper, in case you did not know. TP is almost impossible to understand, when I am walking the shopping aisle at my local grocery.

But is is far, far easier to understand TP, when I am shopping on the net!! In my wildest dreams, I never thought that I would order TP online. But a few minutes ago, that is exactly what I did! And, I believe that I ordered a Best Buy.

I ordered:
Scott 1000 Bath Tissue, One-Ply, 1000 Sheet Rolls (27 Count) from Amazon for $19.78, no shipping charge. Amazon promises to deliver my TP by this coming Friday. So, I will not have to go muscle that TP to my 3rd floor apartment! A delivery guy will leave it off at my apartment door!

Ain't life turning into a miracle? Hmmmmm?

Noon
I'm at Mario's de la Mesa Mexican Restaurant for lunch. After Mario's, I'm heading over to the YMCA for a workout.

I decided to NOT take my bike on these trips, because I will be gone from my apartment for maybe three hours. That's too long a period of time for those problems that I have with hand control. Instead, I am driving my Honda because it is safer.

  2. I know! I'm sure if I put my mind to it, I could quite easily live my life as a recluse. No need to ever leave the front porch. Love getting deliveries, especially when "free".

  3. Bill loves to shop at Amazon, we've had several things delivered in the last couple of weeks. However one thing we ordered, a new camera, they sent us a much inferior one instead of the one we ordered. So had to go to trouble to return it.
    I like to see and touch things before I buy them. I'm probably in the minority now days.

    1. Hi Sheila,
      Some old corner store owners went digital and now sell online.

  5. I think when I have a "home base" I'll do most of my non-food shopping on-line. I think you're right, why drag it from the car to the house when it can be delivered right to your front door. Just order enough at one time so that the shipping is free. PS - With a Target RedCard, you get a 5% discount on your order and free shipping on any amount if you charge it to your card. That's pretty good. :)

    1. Hi Suz,
      Well, let's think about what is better. 10 million shoppers driving all over searching for stuff to buy? Or those same 10 million shopping at their computer doing that buying?

      Then, after the purchase is made, one truck delivering 150 packages a day? Or 150 buyers running all over town to bring their purchases home in their cars?

    2. Good point. I'm fortunate to live in an "urban village" where I can find almost everything I need in 2-3 blocks.

  7. Mister G you can pay $.50 a roll or $10 a roll for TP
    The only good one is the one that doesn't leave pieces behind
