WFMW - Online shopping


This week Rocks in my Dryer is hosting a backwards edition of Works For Me Wednesday where the reader (you!) is asked to help solve a problem. Shannon's blog will have hundreds of people posting their requests for help...so when you have helped me out, please go over and see what else needs your attention.

Tis the Season!


Birthdays are coming up and Christmas is few months away. I would like to know where you like to shop online.
Do you shop on Etsy?
What are your favorite Etsy stores?
Do you shop on ebay?
Do you have a favorite there?
Do you get everything through Amazon.com?
How about Overstock? any luck with them?
Got a friend or family member that you want to give a shout out to? Go ahead!

I have two nieces that are going to need some gifts (4½ and just under a year old, by Christmas time) so I'd love some ideas for those girls, too.


So spill the beans - where do you shop online?
Leave links in the comments section and I will update this post with clickable links from those that got posted. I know that sometimes the urls are too long and aren't clickable in the comment section...but they come through in my email.

Have a Fabulous Day!

UPDATE - Here are the links from the comments, so far...
There are some real gems in here. OOoooh I can't wait to start browsing.


UPDATE 6 Sept 08
I think I have gotten all of the links from the comments. There are some really great finds in here. Thanks to everyone who commented!

I recently collected all my favorites into one blog post: Here's the link:

I occasionally use ebay, and definitely amazon, but I'm loving more and more handmade goods to give to people. Have fun!

I definitely hit amazon and take advantage of the free shipping offers they extend during the holidays.
In addition, I like

http://store.babycenter.com/home.do
AND, may I recommend if you haven't discovered it yet

www.babycheapskate.blogspto.com

where Angie keeps you up to date on who is offering great deals!

I'll be sure to stop back later today and check out the other reader suggestions, great topic!

I'm all about Amazon. Sometimes I hit eBay, too, but rarely; it's so hard to keep prices down there.

I love Etsy! I buy all kinds of things there, because I love how unique things are and that you can get customized stuff!

Here are a few of my favorites:

I adore shopping online because who really wants to see my 4 year old melt down in the department store followed up by a cranky 2 year old confined in her stroller being semi-entertained by her uber bored 9 year old brother? NOT ME.

Looks like you've gotten some fabulous links, one tip I would give you is to ALWAYS google that stores name with "promo code". You can almost always get reduced to free shipping, and I've gotten up to 30% off my purchase price with a code that took me an extra minute or two to find. I'm such a fan.

Good Luck & Happy Shopping, Whitney

a great price on this laser tag game I am getting for my fmaily for Christmas:
http://www.etoys.com/genProduct.html?PID=4767254&ctid=17

Additionally, I shop amazon all the time (which is also tpys r us now).

And anything personalized I think is great!(LV has a lot to choose from)

I will have to check the links listed here.
Girls of that age, you cannot go wrong with anything Hannah Montana. Walmart has a ton of clothing items and dress up. I am sure that T-R-U has it too.

Leigh said...

oooo, aubrey had some good ones. Will check others...

Wanda said...

I have bought some super sweet deals here....
If you are a GOOD shoe lover....
This is the best discount place to go online.

Amazon for books, CDs and toys
Zappos.com for shoes
Gap for my kids' clothes
Bluefly.com for my own clothes
cooking.com for kitchen stuff
drugstore.com

I think that's about it.

I use Amazon a lot. And to promote my own business... We have a few great (and educational) gifts and toys in our My Kids Store. We also sell Occasion Bags. A four 1/2 year old would enjoy our Activity Time Occasion bag.

Tiffanie said...

PS thanks for stopping by my blog! And although my counter says seven days, Doctor thinks I'm past due and wants to induce tomorrow. Hopefully baby comes tonight!

Thank you everyone!!
