Yep, buy  woodworking supplies and tools. Also buy livestock supplies. 
Kind of weird to be the first to vote. Never done that before. Reminds me of the time I voted in a pork checkoff in my county,  they published the results in the local paper and I was the only one that voted. Talk about secret voting.

No box for me to check.  ;)  I do some but I wouldn't classify it as quite a bit.  Mostly specialty tools, parts or woodworking supplies.

I'm with Chet and Paul. I've bought a few things and investigated for in-state purchase. Some of the places that i might have bought something on the internet either didn't sell online, didn't support my Mac OS or I ended up having to order on the phone for some other reason.

I'm with Chet and Paul and Sprucebunny, and it seems I keep the UPS driver stopping about 1-3 times a week. Sites I have had most activity with are McMaster-Carr, Surplus Center, and ToolCrib (now Amazon.com). There are others, and sometimes I just look, price it with Shipping, and then buy locally if about the same price.

I'm with Chet, Paul,  Sprucebunny,  beenthere, and Charlie.  Hows that make you feel Charlie smiley_really_happy. Sometimes Lucky (the UPS driver) stops everyday one week, and then I don't see him for two more weeks. I buy stuff from Bailey's quite a bit, sometimes on the Internet, if I know exactly what it is, but usually I call them.

I like buying on ebay for NEW items. No sales tax but be careful because they can rip ypu off on the shipping. these are things you have to weigh out. If you buy it local you can take it back and get your money back.  bought on ebay you usually have to Eat your bargain if it wasn't wht it appeaed to be...I do buy a lot of stuff on ebay and soooo far have been lucky..

Don't forget, you are required (in most states) to pay/declare that sales tax on your income tax return. ;)

 :D :DPoor Bro. Noble! 
I don't Christmas shop in stores.  It's the internet all the way.  They even have a gift wizard that helps ya find things for those hard to buy folks.  The selection is great and I always find exactly what I need.
