Christmas is over, New Year's Day has come and gone. I know that some of you have made resolutions that you may or may not keep. In the event that you have waited until the last minute to do your Christmas shopping, let me share what I have learned that will make next year's holiday shopping much easier!  

This year, the week of Christmas, I still had a few gifts to purchase. I was in a little bit of a panic until I got on to the Nordstrom website and discovered that you can shop online and specify which store. You shop that store's inventory, make your purchases, then pick them up at that store. Not only do they offer in-store pickup, they will also gift wrap your purchases AND bring them out to your car! Brilliant use of technology if you ask me!
