The Art Of Shopping

There comes a time in life when we don’t “need” a lot more stuff and shopping seems much less important and less fun than it used to be. Now, I shop for the stuff I need like food and self care products. The things I want like cool tech, and art supplies, then there are things I need to buy for other people, birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, and other special occasion gifts. I don’t go to shopping centers anymore, instead I've become an Amazon super shopper! I can spend hours searching for something special and have often thought about sharing some of my cool finds.

I looked into that idea a little further and here’s what I l found. I can be an Amazon affiliate. That means I can post about things I see on my shopping sprees and include an affiliate link that will take you to that very item.

Now for the really cool part, if you click on the link in my blog or on my social media pages, for the next 24 hours I will receive commission on anything you purchase. It doesn’t have to be the product I featured in the post either. The commission is small actually very small, but as it adds up it could help offset the cost of my website, which doesn’t generate any income. Another awesome thing is Amazon pays the commission not you so, an affiliate link is free for me to included in my post and free for you to use.

So how can we make the most of this situation? Let’s start with what I want to do for you. I am working on curated lists of items. I’ll show you things I use and love. I’ll introduce you to cool artists who sell one of a kind handmade items. I’ll search high and low for unique items that will surprise and delight you. I will help you find the perfect thing for yourself or your friend, and because it’s Amazon you‘ll get the best price, fast free delivery and if you need it, the best customer service. So what are we waiting for? My first list is below. It's ideas for Father's Day gifts. Hope you enjoy this little extra at The Art of Living by Cindy Keen.

Made in the shade dad

I bought this Cool Cabana in May of this year and let me tell you it is a marvel of engineering. Simple to raise and to lower. Sand pockets on the bottom corners weigh down the tent and prevent wind from interfering. There is even cell phone pockets high up on each fabric corner. Now for the amazing part, I can carry, raise, lower and replace the Cool Cabana in it's carrying case without help! This thing is the bomb, but don't

buy a knockoff, all cabanas are not

created equal.

Rough and tough til bedtime kinda guy

Does dad camp? 30,550 people have reviewed this product and they love it. Seems camping, even in a tent doesn't have to be uncomfortable.
