I love this time of year! Everything about it makes me happy — the time with family, eating yummy food, decorating our Christmas tree, seeing the pretty lights everywhere, and shopping til we drop. Buying gifts for all of my loved ones is one of my favorite parts about Christmas, so I am really looking forward to all of sales coming up. In just a couple of days it will be Black Friday and then we will have Cyber Monday to look forward to. I can’t wait to start all of my shopping!
I have to admit, I prefer to do most of my shopping online. With three kids, including twin toddlers, it’s just so much easier to shop from the comfort of my own home. I can enjoy a cup of coffee and shop in my pajamas, and within a few days to a week the items are delivered right to my door. There is nothing more exciting than receiving packages in the mail! Plus, I have found that I tend to get better deals when I shop online.
One of my favorite places to shop online is eBay. I have been buying and selling on eBay for over ten years. It is usually one of the first places I look before making a purchase because I can almost always guarantee that I am going to find the best deal there. Many times I have saved 50% or more on items that are brand new in the package. From shoes for my kids, designer jeans for myself, or cell phone accessories for my family, eBay is my little secret to buying the things I love at a discount!
With the holidays approaching, eBay is great place to buy gifts for the whole family. You can get everything you need for everyone on your list in one place! Buying on eBay is simple — just browse the categories or search for a specific item and you will find tons of great deals! If you are unsure of what to buy, you can always check out the eBay Holiday Gift Guide for ideas.
To make on-the-go shopping with eBay easier, download the eBay mobile app available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone devices. I use mine all the time! When I am out shopping, I use it to compare prices to see if an item is cheaper on eBay. I have purchased several items using the app and haven’t had any issues. It is super easy!
