Halloween is over, folks. And that means Thanksgiving is about to get mowed over by the holiday juggernaut that is The Holidays. It also means that you’re going to have to be buying presents for just about everyone you’ve ever met in your entire life.
That’s where Bryce-azon steps in, as faithful readers will remember.
First off, let me just say that if you’re going to shop for Christmas presents (or any other sort of present), consider avoiding chain stores and buy something from a local artisan or local store. Keep your money in your community, instead of shipping it off to some suit in an office somewhere.
But I know you. You’re like my students–the ones I always tell to “Start your research early.” They never do, and you’re probably not going to shop local, no matter what I say.
Well then . . .
If you must shop Amazon, at least do it the right way. Give me some of the proceeds! 🙂 Amazon has this thing where if you shill for them, they give you 4-6% of what they make off the people you sent their way. For you, this is easy. Anytime you want to buy something from Amazon, come here to my blog and click the Bryce-azon picture up above there. (Beautiful, isn’t it?) Then, shop as normal. Search for whatever you want. Put it in your cart. Pay for it, and rest easy, knowing that you essentially gave me a Christmas present at the same time you were getting Christmas presents for someone else. (Note: I also accept Hanukkah presents, Festivus presents, birthday presents, get well soon gifts, graduation presents–I am no respecter of presents. I take ’em all!)
And if you’re hard up on ideas for presents, allow me to make a small suggestion:
Note: This will not be the last time I remind you to BUY MY BOOK this holiday season. Because it’s the gift that keeps on giving, people. Nothing says “I love you” like a book with a kid with his arm on fire. Trust me. Your wife/husband/son/daughter/grandchild/secretary/teacher/niece/dentist/_______ will love it.
Anyway–happy shopping, peoples! Tis the season to be greedy. 🙂 After all, we ain’t gonna get out of this recession by *saving* our money.
