I order a lot of items from the Amazon website. Well, the app more specifically. I cannot recall the last time I went to the website. I do everything through my phone. I order groceries. I arrange for dogwalkers. I catch Netflix. As for my Amazon shopping habit, I particularly am fond of ordering shoes. I am lucky that my shoe size is common and I have not experienced a change in shoe size since my teenage years. I’ve had a steady foot, although extremely clumsy. One can also say my height peaked early on but I won’t go there. Regardless, I don’t have much of a problem with ordering shoes online. I’m happy my shoe habit is fully supported.
While shoe size is not an issue for me, ordering other items have been a hit and miss endeavor. Actually, I don’t have too much of an issue ordering dresses or food online. My problem is when I order items that require me to pay attention to dimensions, i.e. packing boxes, ornaments, syorage compartments, vases.
Recently, I had to order moving boxes (more on that another time). I’m at an expert in ordering moving supplies. I have lived in 20 cities. And, in one year I’ve lived in three. Two at the same time. And, I have moved five times in the past year. It’s complicated. All this to note my moving expertise. Amazon has a record of all my past moving purchases. It shouldn’t be complicated to re-order and pack up. Well, I suppose I was doing 101 things at the same time when I recently ordered moving boxes. When my order arrived, I was surprised to be able to carry my package in my bag. Apparently, I ordered mini moving boxes.
In my defense, who needs mini moving boxes and why would they be categorized as moving boxes? I felt as if I had just become part of the upside world or wonderland. Such an order set me back a day or two in terms of packing. It was obviously my fault. I take ownership of shopping while distracted. It’s never been a problem before.
Wait, there was another time. I needed a cookie jar to place my sugar packets that I buy in bulk at around 500 at s time. I found a beautiful one on Amazon. When it arrived, I realized I needed to go to Marshall’s to buy a cookie jar. I had bought something that could maybe hold 15 packets.
I really need to pay better attention to dimensions. But I suppose it wouldn’t have helped me too much as I probably wouldn’t have processed said information. Yes, I am a hard worker with a great work ethic. But I’m a lazy shopper. There. I said it. In my defense, many of us are now lazy shoppers.
