Whenever I am in the market for a new item, I like to compare prices online before buying. Or, depending on what the item is, I may search for patterns to make said item.
Earlier this winter I was looking to buy some new boots. I Googled winter boots, and low and behold, nearly every website I visited after that had ads for boots.
Last week I was searching for patterns for cloth grocery bags. Ads for grocery and tote bags are popping up everywhere.
This is not new. This has been happening for a long time. I just ignore the ads. I have never, not even once, clicked on one of those ads.
But this winter has made me a little bit mean.
So now I spend some time each day searching for things like a duck-billed platypus or a dead armadillo or a purple aardvark. Or maybe a gold plated thing-a-ma-bob or a jewel encrusted doohickey.
Who knew that there was really such a thing as goose down underwear!
