Remember the good old shop from home days when the vendors came to your right to your door? I remember the milkman ... the fruit and vegetable guy ... and the bakery guy who brought my favorite spanish cake. There were lots of door to door salesman like the Fuller Brush man and the Britannica encyclopedia salesman ... You don't remember? ... Okay, okay my age is showing here! :0)

I'm not a shopper. I go to town as infrequently as possible. If I've had enough, I'll stop shopping, pay for what I have and go home.

I like shopping from home. Now you can too! I've put together bookkeeping store items that will help you with your bookkeeping and / or your business. All vendors have refund guarantees if you are not satisfied with your purchase.

Why leave your home office to shop ... when you can shop from your desk online any time of the day or night.
