Staying Warm in the New Year is key here with the cold temps of Minnesota. Being outfitted in the right gear is essential.
So as you all know, I’m from Minnesota. We have some of the coldest and most brutal winters in the nation. I think Thrillist actually just named us as number one in their comparison chart for 2017. But when you live and breathe everything Midwest, you try and get used to it.
Keyword up above is TRY!! Now I have lived pretty much in the same rural Minnesotan town my whole 30 years I’ve been alive. And let me tell you, going from the hot summers to the brutally cold winters never gets any easier each and every year. When you think you’re prepared, once those freezing temps hit, you realize oh how wrong you were.
Luckily this year PayPal has me covered. I love to support small businesses when I can. Obviously being a small business myself, I like to return the favor to those in the same position as me.
You can support small businesses in the conveniently from your home, without needing your wallet or credit card by using PayPal as your payment! I am a huge supporter of PayPal and use it as often as businesses will allow me. They also have PayPal Credit! When you checkout with PayPal, they give you the option to use PayPal Credit, which gives you the ease and comfort to pay over time. PayPal Credit is subject to consumer credit approval by Comenity Capital Bank, the lender for PayPal Credit accounts.
I started using PayPal Credit last year when I was holiday shopping and I have never looked back. They also have something called “Return Shipping on Us” where PayPal offers return shipping refunds called Return Shipping On Us, up to $30 in return shipping costs per order and 12 orders per calendar year.
I was able to outfit myself this winter with some amazing good apparel from Wilsons Leather. They had awesome deals and high quality products that I couldn’t pass us! I ordered a jacket, gloves, hat and a scarf. That way I knew I had all the essentials I needed in order to hopefully survive the cold. Especially since it’s been around -20 the last few days!
I can honestly sadly say that I’ve never had “matching” sets of outerwear. Gasp, I know. So I figured it was high time that that changed and purchased all of these to closely match one another as best as I could! And I couldn’t be more happy about all the products I received. They are warm, cozy and affordable. 3 of the best things a girl could as for.
So if you’re looking for a way to support small business then shopping PayPal Small Merchants is the absolute way to go!
