The Best Places for You to Shop Online

This post contains referral links which means that if you purchase from one of my links, I will receive a small percentage of the sale.  Don't worry, this won't cost you any extra!

It's that time of year again!

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

I'm about halfway down with mine and most of it was done on my laptop after the kids went to bed.  Online shopping for the win!

The Best Places for You to Shop Online

I actually do most of my shopping online, even household supplies using Amazon subscriptions.  With four kids and a chronic illness, it's been a lifesaver for me. 

Here are just a few things I love about online shopping...


  • Not having to take the kids to a store.
  • Being able to easily compare prices with other stores before purchasing.
  • Not having to limp around a store while my hips pop out of joint.
  • Getting money back on what I buy!
  • Not having to lug shopping bags into the house.  
  • Saving money on gas expenses (thanks free shipping!)
  • Being able to do it in my spare time instead of having to make a special shopping trip.

When I shop online, I always go through Ebates so that I can get money back on whatever I buy.  It's been pretty awesome and all I have to do is go through the Ebates site when I shop.  I actually have a plugin on my computer that lets me know when a website has a cashback option through Ebates so all I have to do is click on the button, and I'm good to go.  You can get $10 right away by signing up here.   


And because I'm just that awesome, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite places to shop online :)

1. Amazon
You can pretty much get anything on Amazon!  I seriously cannot say enough good things about it.  It's made even more awesome with Amazon Prime which I love for its two day shipping (you know, for those times when I forget that we have a birthday party that weekend) and for the Subscribe and Save option.  With Amazon Subscribe and Save, I can add things to my subscriptions and have them sent to me automatically at time intervals that I select.  Never having to worry about running out of toilet paper or worry about remembering to pick some up while I'm at the store is kind of awesome.




2. Etsy
I love supporting small shop and finding things that are unique.  I know that every time I buy something on Etsy, I'm helping someone who is running their own small business and, as a small business owner myself, that makes me really happy. 




3. Target
Target also has a subscription service that I use for diapers and wipes (Up & Up diapers are my favorite brand).  With the Redcard I always get 5% off of everything I buy, plus free shipping on all orders.  Is there anything better than browsing Target in your pajamas while relaxing on your couch?



4. Zulily
I love stalking the sales at Zulily to see if some of my favorite brands or products are on the site.  I've gotten a lot of clothes for me and the kids along with toys and gifts on Zulily.

5. Gymboree
Gymboree is at the top of my list for kids' clothes.  Their stuff is very high quality and super cute.  Just about every time they have a sale, I buy a ton of stuff for my kids to grow into.  I also love that I can get outfits for my kids that coordinate with each other.

Get the Best Deals at Gymboree!

6. Shutterfly
It's easy for me to take a ton of pictures with my phone, but they don't do much good just sitting in my online photo gallery.  Shutterfly makes it easy to print them to hang on my picture wall and to order photo gifts for grandparents.

7. Dollar Tree
Yup, everything's really just a dollar!  It's a great place to get business or party supplies, home goods, small gifts, etc.  Dollar Tree was pretty much my favorite store every when I was a kid because it was the only place where I could afford to buy things.



8. Sunshine and Spoons Shop
And of course, I gotta throw this one in here too.  I have at ton of shirts from my shop in my closet so it's not just a shameless plug!

  1. I love shopping on Amazon and Etsy. Also sometimes Jet has good prices on things and I think the threshold for free shipping is $35.00

    Ali Express is another good one to use for buying certain things at a great price and/or in bulk. The only downside to that site is that things take longer to ship since it's based in China. I have gotten some craft supplies there they don't carry anyplace else, and that is a big plus when you have an Etsy shop since that will set you apart from the competition.

    I'll definitely check out Ebates, as getting money back would be a huge help with my being on Disability (on the lower income end).
