I'm not sure why I make it harder on myself.
Whenever I go to the mall to shop, I have this need (more like an *itch*) to price compare before I purchase anything. This just makes things very complicated, not only for me, but for my husband who has the unfortunate honor of accompanying me on my expeditions.
I have this crazy system for price comparison shopping. First stop would always be Holt Renfrew to check out the new designer bags from Louis Vuitton. I make detailed notes of the ones that I want. Then, I head over to Best Buy (no, no, not to buy) to use their computers to see if I can get a better deal on the net. Sometimes, there'll be just one on the list, but when it's a mile and a half long, I wish there was a better way to do it.
And, the better way, doesn't mean buying it straight off the shelf at Holt Renfrew, or waiting until the price drops at the store (which is never by the way). What if I can get a better deal somewhere else? I mean, of all the sellers out there in the world wide web, someone must be having a Louis Vuitton sale!
It's a habit my husband is trying to break, so he's gone ahead and got me hooked up with Frucall
. This ultra cool service lets me hear current online prices using my mobile phone anytime and anywhere! It's for free and I don't have to download any special software!
Why has no one ever told me about this before? It's the best thing since stilettos were invented!
Now, all I have to worry about is the "evil eye" I've been getting from the sales ladies at Holt Renfrew. As if I'm trying to give away state secret, or something ....
