Amazon,  Consumerism,  January

In which I buy nothing from Amazon for the entire month of January

Okay so I placed 55 orders with Amazon in 2019 (for physical goods). That’s horrible and embarrassing! No wonder UPS and USPS know the corgis so well. I also bought 44 Kindle books. By my math, that’s 99 purchases. My goal for January: buy nothing from Amazon. Why? I have way too much stuff , it’s bad for the environment, and several hundred other reasons. So far so good and it’s 2:30 PM on January 1st. Yay!

Most costly item – Tuft & Needle King Mattress $750 (also largest)

Least costly item – Watch battery $3.29 (also the smallest and the most irresponsible purchase)

Digital orders: Favorite book: Sandworm: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin’s Most Dangerous Hackers by Andy Greenberg and favorite movie: Diane starring Mary Kay Place
