Online shopping

Yea, in case you hadn't noticed, I'm a new mom.

Which means it is more difficult to get out of the house these days. Not impossible. And we get out a lot. But, one of the things that is nearly impossible is shopping for clothing.
A 4.5 month old baby does not make a good shopping companion.
At least not mine.
She likes to be entertained.
Apparently shopping is not yet entertaining to her. (My wallet hopes this remains the case for a very long time)

Enter...online shopping.

What did moms do before online shopping?

They must have been naked.
And their kids must not have worn diapers.
And they probably saved a lot of money.

I thought I would share a few of my favorites.

Diapers.com is AMAZING. I love it. You all know I am a Target girl at heart (our family bleeds red and kahki), but Diapers.com has some of the specific baby related things that Target doesn't have. They often run specials ($10 off a box of diapers), and they ship very fast. So, when I think of things we need, I put them in the Diapers.com cart, when I have enough for free shipping, I order them. Simple!  Love it.

They also have partner sites that we love....
Soap.com  (yes, we like cleaning products in a strange way)
Wag.com (hello, dog food delivered to my doorstep!)
Casa.com (fun home related items)

Gap.com
I have the Luxe card so everything ships free. I hate paying for shipping. It's a pet peeve of mine.

And here is the big news. Which is probably not big news at all. This has likely been the case for a long time, but I just learned about it...
Nordstrom.com ships free all the time.
Free Shipping. Free Returns.  Happy Kara.

Now I will be clothed. My baby will have diapers. And Jeremy will walk to the front door each day wondering what I ordered this time.
Baby socks? Check!
Diaper Genie refills? Check!
New tights? Check! 

Did I mention that I usually order these things while feeding the baby at 3:00am?
Money seems free at 3:00am.
