shopping tips for the bus

We love reading the Buschick column from Seattle. This week she gave a nice little list of tips for holiday shopping by bus. Even though she writes about Seattle, most of her points are easily transferrable to Ann Arbor. Here are the main points, but you should definitly read her article for the full explanation on each topic.

1. Buy less
2. Use the internet to shop and/or pre-shop
3. Concentrate. Bus shopping requires planning ahead.
4. Shop on the way. Take advantage of transfer times and make each trip a multitasker
5. Be flexible. Try Zipcar.

Shopping from the bus on S. Industrial (Ann Arbor's resale row) is earth friendly and awesome! The Klothes Kloset has awesome resale women's clothes, and I usually find cool stuff at the recycle center and PTO thrift shops across the street. 3 stores from one bus stop plus you're recycling!
