Works for Me Wednesday

I'm not a shoe person. It takes forever to find a pair that I like, and then they don't seem to have my size. With three kids, it's a chore to find the time to shop for shoes because, as we all know, it never takes "just a few minutes".

A few years ago, I stumbled across Shoebuy, and I love it. Free shipping and free returns. The shoe doesn't work for you? Print off the return UPS label and you're good to go! Hundreds of things to choose from that are usually all on sale with no tax charges. The best is when they have an extra 15% off day. I needed new shoes for work and was able to find two nice pairs while saving an extra $24.00!

When the kids need new shoes, I can guesstimate that they will need another size up. I can get Stride Rites and whatever else you can think of from here. The kids can browse with me, and with the search only in my size option, we don't have tears when they find out their dream shoe does not come in their size.

So check it out! It's a great site!

Oh, wow, this is great! I HATE shoe shopping almost as much as I hate bra shopping. (Trying to find jeans that fit comes in 3rd.) I'm gonna look into this one. Thanks!

Lol, I'm with Mom2fur on all of those, too.

I have a hard to fit foot, so I'm going to look into this. Another great one is zappos.com--also free returns, but their non-sale prices are kind of high.

I'll check into this! I've never bought shoes without going to the store and I *HATE* that!

I love this. I hate shopping for shoes because I have really wide feet. It's very difficult finding wide shoes. I've received plenty of catalogs, but the cost of shipping and returning, if necessary, kept me from ordering. Thanks!

Thanks, Amy! This looks great! Frankly, I love shoe shopping, but with three little ones in tow, it's really not so much fun. But I have stayed away from online shopping because you never know how they're going to fit, and then there goes all that shipping money down the drain! (Now, could someone suggest a site with cute jeans that fit "grownups" and don't show off my Victoria's Secrets????)

I'll have to remember this one for when I have kids of my own. Thanks for sharing! =)

That sounds really neat. I'm not a fan of any kind of shopping, so that will come in handy! Thank you for sharing.
