sometimes i feel bad that i rely so heavily on e-shopping. if i want cute boutiques to populate my neighborhood, shouldn't i literally support them by giving them my business? when i made a large purchase not so long ago, my taller half rationalized that i was helping the economy. what a self-less act.
i appreciate the influx of tourists dropping their savings here during our slump. if the tables were turned, would you hop across the border for a shopping excursion?
could you ever be induced to shop just to support your local economy?
