Best non-tech internet shopping articles ever

Michelle Slatalla of the New York Times writes the best non-tech internet shopping articles ever. If you are female, anyway. Sometimes it comes off as snooty and expensive, but it's usually also humorous and informative. So many of my favorite splurges have been her idea. My Mad Gabs lipgloss, my shoe rack (or at least the idea of my shoe rack), and some of my more successful gift ideas. And a lot of other things I'm still keeping in my head as possibilities for future splurging, like Hammacher-Schlemmer vented umbrellas. Last week, her article was on coffee grinders, and I am so tempted... as were tons of people, I think, because the site she recommended nearly buckled under the load.

My brother has said that his dream job is to test video games for a living. I think my dream job is to write funny articles about online shopping experiences. Yes, okay, I'm being a little facetious.
