You know you’ve been shopping at Amazon too much…

… when which of the following happens?

A) A box arrives, and you cannot for the life of you figure out what might be in it, because you’re actually waiting for several orders.
B) You open it in front of one of your children, totally forgetting that one of the things you ordered was Guitar Hero 5. For Christmas.
C) You quickly pull out the other items and begin soliloquizing about how funny it is to get pillowcases and an exercise ball in the same box! Haha!
D) Later you scurry to the computer to track your other orders, because you’re pretty sure you have a guitar coming, and you may need to create a diversion.
E) All of the above.

And how was your evening?

Pssst! Have you read about Save Up ’10 and voted for Want Not so that I can learn even more ways to save you money? Every click helps!


  1. I’m the same way!!! Between Amazon, Etsy, and Ebay, I always wonder what’s in the box when I receive one. 😀

  2. LOL!!!! That is me to a tee!!!!

  3. E) All of the above…but I don’t think it means too much shopping at Amazon 😉

  4. Hee hee! Hopefully they were thrown off track?
    But, no, there is NO such thing as shopping at amazon too much!

  5. Definitely (E)……My 3 year old son now talks to the UPS guy like he’s his best friend. I think that’s a sign that I have a problem LOL!

  6. I have the same problem with Amazon. Sometimes there will be a box at my door and I will have no memory of even ordering something!

  7. Me too! I can’t tell you how many times a box shows up and I have no earthly idea what’s inside it. Damn you, Amazon Prime. I wish I could quit you.

  8. All of those except C has happened to me. And the box I opened in front of my kids contained Zhu Zhu pets instead of Guitar Hero. And I’m always checking the front porch because surely, I’ve ordered something lately from somewhere.
