One disadvantage to rural living is the inability to pop out shopping. Because you have to factor in the extra travel time, by the time I get to the shops I usually run out of time (and energy) to do much shopping.

So I’m learning how to shop on the internet and I am liking it. I used to only order things online that I couldn’t find in the stores. Now, I’m beginning to think first about ordering online.  This method saves time and money spent on petrol. 

Last week I did a lot of ordering online. A lot. The daughters decided to put their Christmas lists on Pinterest this year. So with a couple of clicks, presents got ordered. Some even got wrapped. At last count, I’d placed over 20 online orders. I was able to take advantage of sales and free shipping on most of them.

The orders are starting to arrive and it already feels like Christmas because by now I’ve forgotten what I’d ordered. I don’t want to give away too many secrets, so I’ll only post one photo.
