I LOVE getting packages in the mail. There are few things in the world better than getting really great mail! This week, I am so very excited to get home, actually check the porch or the mail, and see what treasures abound. I have an unhealthy connection to Etsy and Amazon to feed my illness. So far this week I have received a book, a custom bracelet, and I am impatiently waiting for a new scarf.
Now, the hubs knows this about me, and he tragically likes to play a joke on me by sending packages to the house from work. I get excited, open it up, and find only bubble wrap and an ice pack. I am on to him now though, and I am suspect of any square-ish box of a familiar size.
This is the time of year that kicks off my mail obsession because the e-commerce universe knows when to start filling my mailbox with glorious catalogs to kick off the holiday shopping season. I look forward to doing all of my holiday shopping online so that I have so many packages coming I don’t even know what is in them. Especially if I employ my “one for you, one for me” shopping strategy. I don't even care if they are for me, I just like boxes full of treasures.
I am considering recycling the bubble mailers into fake presents to send to the hubs at work.
