I don't really do much in the way of "shopping" per se -at least not the kind where I take off and disappear for the bulk of a day and come back home loaded with purchases.
I do "shop around" though a bit. However, most of that exercise involved visits to the local Goodwill Store where I look for old plates or glassware, candlestick holders, or other small pieces that could easily be converted to use as a pedestal for in between plates when I put together 2-tiered or 3-tiered dishes for pretty little serving pieces.
Aside from the old dishes shopping stuff, lately I have been shopping around in search of something I can use for something, some place, to organize my information pertaining to my Avon customers, their likes/dislikes, purchases and other notes along those lines.
Between looking around at local stores, I've also been checking out potential leads online too. I have found some really neat things online -mainly pertaining to kitchen type additional stores -like these cabinet organizers from ovis - many of which I really would like to incorporate in my kitchen (if I ever win the lottery, ya know) but these types of organizers were of no help to me right now for my needs with my Avon route, unfortunately.
The thing is, I have an idea in my mind what I need, what I want, what would work, but I don't really know how to describe it completely.
However, I do believe that if I ever see something that I think will work really well for me, I am of the opinion that I will know it when I see it but until something pops up in front of me, guess I'll just have to continue in my search.
Good thing I do enjoy "shopping around" though, isn't it?
