I haven't whinged for a while and a Thank you!!

With the dreaded "c" word fast approaching I am trying to be as organised as possible.  For 2 main reasons SAVING TIME and MONEY. 

Yesterday I thought I would dabble in some on line shopping from a large retailer, lets call them Kmart.  I had read the junk mail, knew what I was after, jumped on the website, found what I was after and then tried to add it to my "bag .  NOTHING, NADA, ZIP, ZERO.  I shut down the computer tried again same story.  I tried 4 times yesterday and twice this morning and could not buy anything. 

Excellent work Kmart now if I want the items I will have to either call your customer care number or go in to your shop.  Really now I am not sure I can be arsed driving to my nearest store and we don't have a landline at the moment so I would need to use my mobile which I can imagine would cost a bomb and would defeat the purpose of trying to save money.

Its a shame Kmart as you are my favourite shop and I have never had a bad shopping experience.  My local shop never has long queues at the check outs and you always seem to have the catalogue stuff.  These are two very imortant qualities when deciding where to spend the HOTH's hard earned money.  Plus in the sale on at the moment I could have pretty much finished my shopping. 

Whinge over!!

On to other stuff now.  I would like to thank everyone who has ever read this blog.  It blows me away that people read this and as a thank you I have started a little thing called "Reader's Choice" on a Thursday.  Basically give me a topic you would like to see a post on.  I have done some great topics in the last few weeks and I am really enjoying it!!  Also Tegan from Musings of the Misguided has started this and to prove how random it is I asked her to do a post on vajazzling.  Yep you read that right and if you want to know more about it pop over and have a look at Tegan's post!!

So give me a topic funny, serious whatever. If you have a topic but want to remain anonymous thats fine feel free to email me or message me on facebook and I will keep it confidential.


Linking up for the first time in a few weeks for IBOT with Essentially Jess who has a whole new name and look!!

  2. I found Kmart to have a useless online store!!! BigW is much better.. though if I am looking for something to buy online - i shop around - ebay usually works out cheapest!

  3. Never shopped online at the big departments. I think there is something therapeutic about shopping in store. If it's ebay stuff i don't mind.

  5. I too love Kmart, but I understand your frustration: not only Kmart but all the major Australian Department Stores - it's taking them so long to get with the times. In saying that I haven't tried any of them lately, but seriously you would think that with all that corporate power they all should have pretty amazing online stores.

    1. Thanks I was only saying the same thing. How hard can it be to update the websites with sold out sizes etc.

  6. Catch of the day is good but it can be hit & miss. Ozsale, brandsexclusive, buyinvite - all good bargains of top brands but delivery isnt the fastest. Big w online is excellent and deliver fast.

    I got a good topic, cleaning vomit out of carpet. Not having much luck getting the stain right out!

  7. I have had the exact same issue with Kmart. I think I may have used IE to get it to work. Or voodoo... both as evil as each other.

    Hope it all works out for you.
