Sometimes I order things online that I could buy at a store just so I can get it in the mail. Its like getting a present when it arrives. I admit it a little addicting.

As much as I want to, I don't. I don't like clutter in my home, and even if I did like clutter I suspect that my wife would murder me in my sleep if I did start to clutter up the home with random crap in an attempt to feel better because I received a package.

i definitely like getting stuff in the mail/ups/fedex, but i can't really afford to buy a lot of stuff. thus i'm left with ordering freebees and catalogs. also yes, my house is lived in by a packrat or two.

I am sad the art of letter writing is dead. Getting not bills in the mail is a nice thing.

Catalogs just tend to go straight into the recycler next to the mailboxes, even though I've removed myself from as many of those as possible.

It is FUN to receive packages, but I don't order just anything to get one. Have made really bad purchases... i.e. I live alone & bought an indoor turkey deep fryer. Please! As if I'm going to deep fry a turkey or even a large roasting hen. Silly purchase. Am being more careful & discriminating now. Learned from that one.

Yes and it's becoming a problem.

@miyoshinum5: I'm so glad that someone else thinks of all packages in the mail as presents!

@pholvey: I think this is why "mystery" items are always popular. It's just like a birthday present from a friend, you don't know what it is but you're pretty sure you'll be disappointed.

I would say I order more free stuff online than I order stuff I have to pay for. Sometimes I get some good free deals, sometimes they aren't that great. Today I received a large package in the mail today from P&G. It included a travel-sized bottle of mouthwash, toothpaste samples, White strips samples, diaper & wipes, detergent, dish-washing soap, and many coupons!

I've noticed deals.woot posts several of the free deals. I also use heyitsfree.net. It's nice to get packages in the mail 2-3 times/week if not more!

I tend to see really cheap deals here and order them. I love the < $1 deals with free shipping. Then I forget I ordered something and it will be a surprise when it arrives!

A day without a package at my door is just not as happy.

And a day without sunshine is like, well, night.

nothing breaks up the monotonoy overseas like a package from the mail room. i order way too many things just so i always have a box to look forward to.

I have bought plenty of small things form Amazon that I didnt need but could use just to get a package from UPS. It brightens my week.
