Have you been shopping out in the real world lately? While I like the hustle and bustle of going to the mall (whether indoors or out), sometimes it becomes a rat race of too many people in one place at one time. When you’re out shopping because you have to purchase something for someone, you don’t want to have to fight your way through a store or wait in line for 20 minutes to check out.
To avoid the frustration of shopping in crowds when you “need” to get something is of course, plan ahead. Ohhh, don’t you hate when writers say that? They say it over and over and over again. Well “some” of us just can’t manage planning everything ahead. So what I’ve started doing when I just couldn’t get my act together in advance is to give a card stating that the present would be coming in the mail or at a later date.
I then order what I want online and have the product shipped directly to the person’s home. People would rather have “you” at their party or gathering than have you be late or not there at all because you didn’t get their present on time.
Time is becoming the most expensive commodity and giving it to others is a great gift. With such a fast paced world and not enough time for caring and sharing, people are missing out on time with friends and loved ones.
