Great plan, right? Yes, indeed!
Until I forgot to change the shipping address. Damn you, one click ordering!
All of the stuff arrived at my house yesterday. Granted, I'll just put a new label on the box and send it to my mom's house; there's still plenty of time. And since the first round of shipping was free*, I'm only paying once for that.
But still. It's both irritating and vaguely amusing. The best-laid plans . . .
*It's more like "free" given that I accidentally** paid $79 for a year's membership to the Prime.
**Yeah, that's a story in and of itself; I was placing a rather large order on Amazon one day, decided to get the one-month free trial of Prime so that I could get the stuff in two days, and fully intended to cancel the membership as soon as my goods arrived. Ha! It all worked just as Amazon wants it to. I completely forgot to cancel the membership, not thinking about it until over a month later when it was too late to back out. Now I continue to fuel Amazon's fire by doing as much shopping there as possible to make up for having spent that $79.
