Beware...I'm about to use the 'C' word
As we all have an Amazon Wish List (yes I even add things for the children), it makes life so much easier. Friends and family can buy us things that we want and vice-versa (most have their own lists too). Much more sociable than getting some cheap Monsoon perfume that you're never going to use in a million years or yet another men's toiletry bag for hubby filled with brands he's never heard of and never uses.
As well as shopping online, I'm raising money for S's school this year as one of the parents pointed out that they have subscribed to Easy Fundraising. So, whilst buying, I'm helping the school. That has a super good feeling to it. Double delight at spending for Christmas then.
