Order Multiple Versions of Something and Return the Ones You Don’t Want

Use Friday to Plan the Following Week


I’ve eaten a meal replacement shake twice a day for two years. Here’s what it was like.

I got OK BOOMERED on that piece about ordering multiple versions of something and sending back the ones that don’t work, which might have been fair. Curious what you think about that whole thing. I know that Amazon is encouraging the buy-try-return practice with Prime Wardrobe, but I also know that we probably shouldn’t be using Amazon as our ethical guidepost here. There is also research indicating that getting packages delivered is more carbon-friendly than driving to the store yourself, but the more we buy and return, the more emissions we create.

Sooooooo maybe I shouldn’t buy three pairs of shoes with the intent to only keep one of them? What do you think? ❤️
