Gary: Welcome to our new blog - A Package at the Door.
Maria: We love to come home and find a package at our door. For me it all started ten years ago when every day I'd find a new wedding gift at the door. It was the dawn of the age of internet shopping!
Gary: Well, to be honest, I get a little nervous if there are too many packages at the door! We have limited space and as financial consultant, I want to make sure we stay within our budget.
Maria: Well, I do have my practical side too. Some of my favorite sites offer free shipping and return or make things easy in other ways. Since I work long hours it takes the place of shopping in real stores - especially if I know I can return the "mistakes"!
Gary: And you don't make many mistakes when you buy things since you do such a great job of researching online. You really seem to enjoy it. Actually, I do too - up to a point.
Maria: You know, you're right. I've come to realize that one of the things I enjoy most about shopping online is being able to read about products, read reviews, compare, etc.. Maybe I am a researcher at heart! Although I do admit, I can sometimes get a bit obsessed and carried away.
Gary: I think we can all get obsessed at times with things we really care about. For me, it's like a treasure hunt. And that's the part of the reason for starting this block. We want to share our obsession with finding treasures with others!
Maria: That's it exactly! A treasure hunt. We love to find hidden (or not so hidden) treasures. And we are going to enjoy sharing them.
Gary: And hopefully other people will enjoy reading about them and maybe sharing some of their favorite treasures too. So, honey, you get the last word.
Maria: Ok, sweetheart, I'll accept that since you got the first word! So I guess all I can say is come join us on our treasure hunt for that perfect package at the door!
