One of the things I love most about online shopping is that when you receive a package, its like receiving a Christmas present. I get very excited over this… and I think having snow madness just escalated my excitement.
Living in Baltimore city, I don’t have a lot of packages sent to my house. First – if UPS requires a signature, I’m never home to get the damn package. Anyone else have this problem? Second – if a package is left on my doorstep, I’m always afraid someone will swipe it.
So – as much as I don’t like to, I get packages sent to my parents’ house. I don’t like it because my mom is nosy! And if too many packages come, my mom thinks I have a shopping problem (and I really don’t).
Anywho – recently I purchased a few new goodies and was finally able to get the packages (since some snow has melted). Yippeee!
BB Dakota Glen Plaid dress:
I originally saw this dress through Gilt. I wasn’t sure of what size to order. So I looked up their return policy and shipping costs. After all was said and done, the cost of the dress would have been around $40. Not too shabby.
Thanks to the power of Google, I looked up this dress to see if I could score it anywhere cheaper. And I did! South Moon Under had this dress for the same sale price. However, their return policy allowed for in store returns (and there is one down the street) AND Retail Me Not had a coupon code. Blah blah blah… I got the dress for $30 and I felt pretty happy about it. I took a guess about the size and was pretty stoked that I was right about that too. Yay – new dress!
I received an e-mail from Piperlime about a sale on boots. I wasn’t really on the market for boots (but always kind of look for non-leather gray boots). Wouldn’t you know – they had a pair of non-leather gray boots for sale ($40!):
Okay – so it wasn’t much but it helped get me through Snowzilla with a smile. I like getting presents!
I also just realized that receiving all of these sale e-mails is probably a very dangerous thing…
