I know that Amazon is kinda evil, but I do buy stuff from there just to get cheaper prices and for convenience. Sometimes my cart just has a really weird mix of things and I bet that happens to a lot of people.

For example my most recent orders:
1.
24 pack of orbit gum
Plastic thread for making lanyards
Hollow City (book)

2.
Crochet sweater book
4 pack of 22oz bags of Bob's Red Mill vital wheat gluten
Space Bags
Tea Tree Shampoo Bar

my recent orders are boring, but my "saved for later" is a window to an undiagnosed multiple personality disorder:

xbox one
electric leaf mulcher
bedside gun vault
and a book about frank lloyd wright

In my current yet-unbought cart I think I have three Chrostopher Parkening music books + henna. And maybe some cat cookie cutters though i may have saved those for later?

I feel bad for not keeping an ongoing cart now. I just buy stuff when I want it, which is probably less environmentally friendly.

Past orders are mostly books, food, vitamins, and cat/dog stuff though. Not super interesting, self.

But yeah, I mostly just order things one at a time when I need them, unless I'm doing my big family Christmas order.

Oh gawd, if we're going to talk about random wish lists... Ever since they came up with that button you can install on your browser that allows you to add anything from anywhere on the internet to your amazon wish list, mine's been a total mess.

Same here.

Right now the top of my wish list is "MysticMaid MysticMop Microfiber Mop with Mop Pad". Yeah, a mop.

The top of mine is a cookbook, but there is definitely a dirt devil on my list somewhere.

Slightly OT, but does anyone use AmazonSmile? Who is your beneficiary? Should I start another thread?

I use AmazonSmile. My beneficiary is the local domestic violence shelter. I felt slightly suspicious when Amazon sent the email about AmazonSmile and it kind of seems like a marketing ploy to make Amazon look awesome after critiques of their business practices and employee treatment, but despite the concerns in this piece we're still donating to all our charities (including our AS beneficiary) at the same rate, so I figure it's ok?
