So, I have a confession…I am an Amazon addict! I may actually be keeping them in business. It’s true! I buy anything and everything on Amazon. And because of Amazon, I can’t stand to purchase something from any other online store because it takes longer than 2 days to arrive at my door. I want it NOW! It just so happens, that I can order certain items on Amazon and get them delivered that same day and even within 2 hours. Shut up!! There may have been a time this past winter, when I ordered something on Amazon with same day shipping because I didn’t want to go out in the cold. Yes! I have a problem and I do not want help with it!
Because I’m an Amazon addict, I know a few tricks and tips that I thought I’d share with those of you who haven’t hit “addict” status yet.
