The other day I got an order from Target. I was giving my bathroom a little “change” and could only find some of the things I wanted online so off away to order I went. This is what came.
One bath mat. 2 bath towels. 2 hand towels and a package of facecloths. Can you even imagine? Seriously, couldn’t they have found a bigger box? When I saw this on my deck I couldn’t imagine what was in it and when I saw it was from Target I was just mystified.
Today I got this from a home party I ordered from.
Why in the world are things being packaged like this? This is so wasteful. I’ve noticed a few other things that bother me. What’s with all this excess cardboard? There are some things that come in the most un-people friendly packaging. I’ve been saving my “box top for education” upc codes for the school district for years and some of those things are dang near impossible to cut through. I buy the “goldfish” crackers in the great big box and you almost need a chain saw to cut though it but the box top points are almost triple on that size so I’m determined!! Huggies baby wipes are made of such heavy cardboard that I have a hard time folding them up for recycling. What the heck??
What have you found dang near impossible to open or get rid of? Do you find the things you order come in way to big of a box and why do stores do that? Are bigger boxes cheaper? The poor UPS man. He must have really wondered what was in that huge box that weighed nothing.
