I was looking up previous orders on Amazon and I realized that I have placed 55 orders in the last six months. I think putting Amazon as an app on my phone has definitely influenced my purchasing. Since making this realization yesterday, I made two more purchases. I'm going for the world's record.
I may have a problem.
I'd like to argue that this is somehow okay though. When I looked through all my purchases, there are only two or three of them that I regretted. There were a handful that I returned as well, but most of them were things that I really needed. For example:
-- diapers and wipes for six months, cheaper than I would've gotten them at the supermarket or Costco
-- each book of the diary of a wimpy kid series purchased used individually
-- scrubs (I inexplicably threw all my scrubs out a while ago during a bedbug infestation)
-- New crockpot
-- birthday presents for at least half a dozen birthday parties for little kids
-- supplies for my daughter's birthday party
-- thank you cards
-- some medical books that my work reimbursed me for
-- New bookcase
-- some pens I really like for work
So I don't think I've bought anything ridiculous. I mean, you've got to buy things, right? I'm stimulating the economy!
