I just wanted to know if anyone else out there is addicted to shopping online as much as I am. It is kinda the only way I am able to shop as the only main store here is the Largest Kmart in the world.

True, they are one place that doesn't give a hassle for shipping to Guam. You won't believe how many places say sorry, don't ship to Guam even if they are using USPS which considers Guam "Domestic postage".

I prefer online shopping with the companies that have online shopping, convenience, and service figured out. ScubaToys, Amazon come to mind. Ebay, Craigslist not my style of shopping.

Yeah .... became addicted long before I found ST. Started when I worked long hours and never got out of the office to get things done. Then it kind of became a mission to find the lowest price with free/fast shipping if I was looking for something particular. Then morphed into beating the DH at finding a lower vacation prices ....

Maybe you should start an internet based travel agency....I have a great travel agent that always finds a better deal than I can. She likes to travel. Her experience has been invaluable in making sure I have a good vacation.

Yes. ST feeds that addiction by having a news feed of new and clearance items added to their site.

Thats about the only way I shop is online. I buy alot of fishing gear and parts online. Most of the reason is no one around here carries what I need.

I spend about 20 min shopping or less and the stuff shows up at my door. No walking around a crowded store, no standing and waiting in line for 45 min. IMO it saves me a ton of time.

I started doing all my Christmas shopping on-line about 3 years ago. It was so easy that I now do almost all of my shopping from my desk at work. I can usually find anything I need with free shipping. I dont think it's an addiction, but it sure saves time.

Yes it saves time, and I am always hooked with free shipping but sometimes it would be nice to go to a store and actually put my hands on it before purchasing. Plus purchasing it right then and there gives the satifaction of having it immediately instead of waiting a few days or in my case a week or 2.

A guy I worked with in Coronado tried to get me hooked up in becoming a "Be your own travel agent" with your own travel website thru YTB.
