Target and other mailorder miracles

Recently, I have taken to ordering from Target and other stores. I know there are millions of folks who are Amazon Prime members and order EVERYTHING from Amazon. I may get there soon, too.

Some items just are not that fun to shop for, you know toilet paper and other paper products are just so big and bulky, they end up being the only items in the cart or the car. Also, things like cat litter and laundry detergent are just heavy to lug around and load in and out of the cart.

I saw that Target had free shipping for orders over $25 or $35. It’s easy for me to get to that amount. I can build a shopping list then place the order and it is normally delivered in a few days.

My list has grown to include staples like oatmeal, nuts, peanut butter, brownie mix (yes, in my world brownie mix is a staple!), along with foil and wax paper, tissue, shampoo, and laundry and dishwasher detergent.

I love it. Free shipping. Some of my boxes weigh 40 pounds. On my front porch. Free shipping. Convenient. Free shipping.

Did I mention free shipping? I am contributing to the brown cardboard boxes being recycled, but I am saving on gasoline. 

Do you take advantage of online shopping and free shipping? What are your favorite sites?
