When Shannon announced that today’s edition of Works for Me Wednesday was going to be about our favorite places to shop, I cringed, because I really have an intense dislike for shopping. As someone who made it her profession for 7 years (I was a buyer for Nordstrom), I just don’t like going in the stores. But then I realized it was ONLINE shopping, so I perked right up.
Many people are going to point you to the obvious places — like Amazon, Overstock, Etsy, Ebay…which are all simply terrific places. I like to do my shopping a little more out of the way, so here’s a couple of my favorites to check for really good deals:
1. Deal of the Day Masterlist No more going to twenty five different websites checking their deals of the day – get ’em all here.
2. Swap@Home Technically, this is a swapping website, you don’t buy anything, but I love check it often to see if there’s anything I want.
3. 6PM For name brand clothing, shoes and bags that click. Deeply discounted and ca-yute!
4. Goodwill As you can probably tell, I love me a good deal…and I have found Goodwill has the highest quality thrifted items at the lowest prices. Seriously.
So that’s my short list. I think pretty much every thing else has been done – I’m now off to check out all the new places to shop online.
Thanks to Shannon for thinking of us moms who like to shop in the comfort of our pjs from our own homes! For more WFMW online shopping, head on over to Rocks in My Dryer.

Sweet! I’m a real time Goodwill shopper, but this online Goodwill is even better for the things I’d normally get on Ebay, like cameras and musical instruments. What fun! Thank you!
