KUSA - OK, been through the first weekend while pledging to do no online shopping.  

I’ve done just fine for not wasting time with big-ticket fantasy shopping (cars, musical instruments).

The challenge has been to normal life.  

You know it’s amazing how even “brick-and-mortar” stores use the web to allow you to shop.  So groceries, hardware, yard supplies are all easier to shop for on the web.  

Boy, it was tough doing a price comparison and even learning whether a store had a given item or not without using the web.

I want to end on an up note!  

I used online advertising to sell a bass guitar that I had purchased in the spring.  


It’s exciting to be able to use the same tools to liquidate things as I used to snag them in the first place.
