    • mmmdraco

      I would say I probably did 75% of my shopping online this year. Between free shipping at Amazon, the free credits from Gilt and HauteLook and the $10 JCPenney coupon code, that was most of my list right there! I did hit up the mall quite a bit, especially Hallmark and Bath & Body Works, but mostly just as I was going to JCPenney to pick up my orders, or use the $10 off $10 coupon I got in the mail. As the mom of a newborn, though, online shopping has been a godsend this year and I've really gotten to know my UPS guy! (Maybe I should get him a present?)
