The news today stated that the Canadian dollar is at it's lowest in 11 years. My first thought was, "How is this going to affect my Christmas shopping?" I know, my brain doesn't work like other people's. Anyway, this will make a big difference in how I do my shopping this year. For the last few years, I have done almost all of my shopping online. I have never had a problem shopping with US companies even ones that don't offer free shipping, but I won't be doing that anymore. I think I will be doing a lot more of my shopping locally this year and if I do order online, it will be with Canadian companies and they have to offer free shipping. Any thoughts??
