    mortar stores don't have what I want!  Just try finding crystallized violets, out-of-print paperbacks published 20 or more years ago, tiny wire whisks, or a white metal U-shaped magazine rack in a store near you.  I couldn't, so I ordered on line.

    I don't do it to avoid paying sales tax.  I still have to pay shipping.  If my local stores had what I want, I'd shop there.  They don't.

      I order a lot of my clothes online. I know what sizes I take from certain places, and they don't carry everything, let alone in my size, in the local stores.

      I might look in the store to see what the fabric and color is like, because sometimes that's not always what you'd expect. But if they don't have what I want, I can't buy it.

      But I can get it online.

      Shopping online has been a real time and effort saver for those of us living in small town/rural America. The online sales tax savings amount to squat, when compared to the time, gas and frustration spent on trying to find or even order exactly what I need locally.
