The Truth About Online Shopping

Overrun


What one corner of my den/office/computer room/craft room looks like this afternoon.

And this is even after I used 4 or 5 smaller boxes to wrap gifts for under the tree.

  2. Too bad none of those boxes are quite big enough for Sophia to play in. I pulled out my box of maternity clothes, and my kids have had hours of fun playing in the giant Rubbermaid box!

    Online shopping is the best :)

  3. Luckeee! This pile says, "I didn't have to brave the wicked Michigan snow and ice to Christmas shop!" SO worth it!

  7. ah yes, but then when January comes and the UPS guy knocks on your door no longer, you'll long for the rumble of the big brown truck bringing you just one more box.

  9. I can't do online shopping. It just doesn't work for me, but plenty of my friends do it & love it. I can see why: it saves all that driving around & long lines (which yes, I stood in yesterday 5 different times!)

    I have to feel, touch, squeeze whatever it is I'm buying, it doesn't matter what: clothes, food, home decor. So whenever I get something I've ordered online, I come away disappointed. That's just me. Silly me.

    PS: I need some boxes to mail my in-laws their Christmas gifts. Could I have a few of yours? :)

  10. Ha ha ha! Gotta love it! I always chuck mine, then when I need a box, I kick myself.

    I heart online shopping.

  11. That big pile is proof of how smart you are to avoid the stores! I've been braving the crowds today and it's not fun.

  12. I love that you can spend enough on some sites to not have to pay for shipping which makes it so much more superior to shopping in a store with a three year old and a 14 month old.

  13. If you decide that you have too many boxes of stuff coming to your house you can forward them here. I am glad to help you out, even though it is a huge favor to you

  14. This is because Amazon only packs one book per box. And I have documentary evidence to support it!

  15. Bless that Amazon and their free shipping!!! I'm still waiting on a few things to arrive - YAY for online shopping!

    And ... you're daughter's artistry - WOW! Only 6 - that is some fantastic artwork for such a little one ... heck, for a big one - I still just do stick figures!
