Errands from the Desktop

I love the internet. Like, REALLY love it. It is such an amazing invention that you no longer even need to leave the house for pesky errands.

You know what I mean … you’ve had a jam-packed week, the weekend arrives, and the last thing you feel like doing is spending your precious free time hunting down that perfect birthday gift or fighting with crowds at the grocery store. Okay, I know there are some of you out there who actually enjoy shopping — this list is not for you.

For the rest of us, the alternative is “online shopping.” There is no sweeter word. Sit in your pj’s with a cup of tea before bed and click-click-click, all the errands are magically taken care of!
