Christmas Shopping Just Got a Little Easier

For years, my biggest complaint about moving to the central interior of British Columbia from Florida has been one thing: the shopping.  There are a lot of things that I used to take for granted when I lived in Tampa… like twenty-four hour grocery stores, Target, and Wal-Mart supercenters the size of Disney.  (Okay, not quite that big, but still, huge.)  Even online shopping in Canada sucks.  (Take a look at the shipping on your favorite store.  Most don’t ship outside the States.)

Another target of my rants has been Amazon.  I love Amazon.com.  You can get everything there.  It’s just amazing to me that you don’t have to leave your house to do the majority of your shopping.  Amazon.ca?  Not so awesome.  At all.  But things just got a little better.

*cue the Hallelujah Chorus*

Amazon.com now ships some stuff to Canada now.  Including toys.

Okay, I can’t get every toy that I want online from Amazon.  There are some products that don’t ship.  But you know what?  There are so many more things that do ship than what I could get before, I’m on cloud nine.  Thank you, Amazon!  You’ve just made Christmas shopping a lot easier!

  1. I want to ask what would make you move from there to here….lol Many times I’ve thought of going to the States!
    But I am glad to know about the change to Amazon, as I have known about the shipping and just never let myself even check it out (I didn’t even know there was amazon.ca)!
    TY!

    • The husband is Canadian and he lives here. 🙂 Otherwise, I’d have stayed in sunny Florida. Just a warning, though: the duty on some things (like clothing) are really bad nasty… so nasty that I cancelled those items out of my order. But still, it gives us a lot more options. YAY!
