Who doesn’t love to find…


…an Amazon box that was delivered to your house, never opened, and shoved in the basement when you were cleaning up for a party that you completely forgot about? I found this one a year after it was delivered.

I had to open it to find out what was in it, but I can’t can’t tell you what it was. Turns out it was intended to be a Christmas gift for someone, who will get it this year instead.

  1. That’s just so mean….. 😉

    • I’m SUCH a year-round Christmas shopper that this isn’t actually a new thing. It’s happened to me before. I have a set place where I keep everything I buy for Christmas all year, and everything is labeled and put on a list. Looks like what happened here is I MEANT to put it away, label it, and write it on the list…but then I just got busy and the box got moved before I completed my task.
