5 Things You Should Be Buying Online

Designer Clothing and Accessories
Designer consignment is a big thing right now–from handbags to shoes, clothing and more for up to 70% off. Over the past year, I’ve been working to simplify my wardrobe and I always find that investing in quality pieces that I love and wear is so much smarter than buying cheap pieces that fade quickly. When it comes to clothing I try to place a strong focus on quality over quantity. It’s still a work in progress for me, but designer consignment is a great place to start.

Flowers
I think it’s because I live in a small town, but around here I don’t even know where to buy flowers anymore. All of the brick-and-mortar florists around here are run by older individuals and their selections are minimal. Their bouquets look like something that I would have seen on my great grandmother’s kitchen table when I was a child, or worse something that I would see at a funeral. On the other hand, there are so many gorgeous modern bouquets today, and I have found that the best place to order them is online.

Motor Oil and Vehicle Specific Car Maintenance Items
When it comes to car maintenance, I am admittedly clueless. Gratefully, I have a few people in my life who know what they are doing. When it comes to things like car oil and air filters, I am happy to be told what to order. If I tried to walk into a store and pick out what I needed, it would never work. So I’ve been taking my little list and ordering what I need on Walmart.com.

Walmart has made significant improvements in their online shopping experience lately, and pickup options now include (1) delivery, (2) in-store pickup and (3) curbside pickup. It’s all about convenience for you. I love using the in-store pickup option so that I know whatever I need will be there waiting for me when I get to the store.

Walmart.com carries Pennzoil products which is great for me because I use Pennzoil® High Mileage motor oil. My car is coming up on 100,000 miles and this oil helps clean out the sludge lesser oils leave behind, while helping to reduce leaks and oil consumption in worn or higher mileage engines. It’s specifically designed for new or late model vehicles with over 75,000 miles, with the mission of keeping engines running clean and going strong.

Christmas/Birthday Presents
Christmas shopping and birthday present shopping used to be difficult tasks for me. I am particular about what I buy for my friends and family. I prefer to purchase ethical and sustainable gifts whenever possible. I also love to support small businesses and artists when I can. I love websites that support and encourage artists to share their gifts with the world. Many websites also offer free and/or quick shipping which makes that holiday crunch time so much less stressful.

Hotels and Airfare
Booking hotel rooms and airfare through third party sites is often a lot less expensive than booking through hotels directly. Many travel sites have a price match guarantee and some offer complimentary hotel amenities like WiFi. Another perk with certain sites is that after you book 10 nights through their site, you get one free night as a reward — a great benefit for frequent travelers.
