A good place to bookmark is passwird.com
It's updated throughout the day and gives the heads up on current really good online deals. Not just tech stuff, although about 75% of it is. But recently because of a deal and promo code mentioned on this site, I replaced all my ancient bath towels for this house and the coast with huge, fluffy ones from Kohl's for $3.30 each shipped! (I think I bought 30 of them.) This site also posts the best deals daily on Amazon. (I'm not affiliated or anything - I just love this site and check it a few times a day).

I have another link like that one Fisher's Mom. I will post it when I get home later.

Another fun one that we have talked about before is Woot.

Ooooh, I'll be watching for that one, GB. You already know how addicted I am to Woot, and then there is wine.woot, shirt.woot, and sellout.woot now. I have to check them all every night before bed. bargainjack.com is another sort of clearinghouse site that is a constantly updated list of good online deals. (I'm really craving a woot-off right now!)

Hate shopping... so I'd much rather push a few buttons than
go to the store and fight the crowds..the noise...the traffic.

Don't like paying shipping and handling fees though...

Books. I always buy books online. And anything I can't find in a regular store (I'm in a small town, it happens more than you would think--I can't even find a decent piano lamp for DH).

I have never liked the mall. I live 45 miles from the nearest little town then it would be at least another 3 hours to the nearest small city the gas now would be astronomical plus there's no guarantee I will find what I want. I buy tons of stuff online you name it clothes, shoes, hard to get food items like gourmet cheese, spices, appliances, cookware, books, etc and the list goes on and on. I like that I can compare shop for the best price and many times shipping is free. Ebay is a favorite Amazon kicks butt I know my favorite sites quite well. The last thing I ordered was a case of Falafal Mix since it's not to be found where I live. I also buy imported foods like German products from germandeli.com and imported cheeses and butters from igourmet.com. I don't care what it is you want you will find it online.

Thanks for this one, GB. I've put it in my toolbar now. It looks like another great resource!

I probably do at least 95% of my shopping online, & have for a number years.

Once I left New York & that lifestyle for my more "laid back" life here on the farm in Virginia, I just find I'm no longer interested in getting dressed up & wasting my time driving & rooting thru stores. There are really very very few things that I can't get online (& cheaper, even with shipping costs) rather than in person.

And now that I'm far from friends & family, online shopping is beyond wonderful for gifting. My elderly parents, who don't need clothing or kitschy stuff, just adore all the specialty food gifts I send them - Czech sausages, cheeses, gourmet jarred goods, pierogis, etc., etc., etc. Online shopping has enabled me to gift folks I love with lots of wonderful perishable things that I otherwise wouldn't be able to buy & send.

A mall? What's that? LOL!!!!!
