Try saying that five times fast.
I have become, of late, an online shopper.
Specifically, an Amazon shopper.
I can find everything I need, at a better price, and I don't have to drive around in the weather and traffic.
Tonight, thanks to my favourite frugal website, I found this Richard Scarry game and a set of books, which was just what I needed to finish up my Christmas shopping for a couple of precious grandchildren.
Total cost: $0.00.
I paid for them with my Discover Card Cashback Bonus.
And shipping was free.
But if I hadn't spent over $25, it would have been free anyway, because of my free month of Amazon Prime that came with the Kindle Fire that I bought on a lightning deal a couple of weeks ago.
And that Kindle is already filled with free books that I found on that same frugal website.
And my house is full of smoke detectors that came in a contractor's six-pack.
And my minimalist shoes (most of which came from my favourite shoe website, 6pm.com) are all fitted with Pedag metatarsal pads that I bought by the dozen on Amazon for much less than my podiatrist charged.
And the Lego man flashlights that we gave the grandkids for Christmas last year (bought on Amazon, of course) are replenished with lithium batteries that cost mere pennies compared to the local stores.
And Bethany and I will both be drying foods all season next year, thanks to a sale on Nesco dehydrators.
And you know those lovely Silpat baking mats that cost a fortune from Demarle? Found some Made in American ones for $5 a piece that will make some nice gifts for my Kiwi friends.
So yes, you might say that I am thankful for Amazon these days.
You can call me the Amazon Queen.
Or Queen of the Amazon.
Have you made any grand purchases on Amazon lately?
