There was a time when I actually enjoyed shopping. No, really. Shopping meant an afternoon out with a buddy, maybe coffee, definitely laughter.
Nowadays shopping is just stressful. First nothing fits right. Second, either the kids are with me and bugging me to hurry up or they’re not there and I’m anxious about time, keeping an eye on the clock so I can make sure they don’t overstay their welcome wherever they might be.
So, to keep the stress to a minimum I try to do most of my shopping online, which is fine for the most part, but can get a little lonely. The thing I miss the most is the shopping buddy who will be brutally honest about how something looks or will be quick to quip that she knows I can get that same thing cheaper somewhere else.
Fine, short of sharing links with friends through Skype or IM I’m not going to recreate that shopping camaraderie on my couch, but with the help of Digital Folio I can at least get the tips on prices that I used to rely on friends to provide.
