A few days ago, I ordered some edamame soybean seeds on Amazon. (Yes, our garden is off to a late start, but it’s getting there!) As I’ve blogged about before, it’s gotten tough to find soybean seeds at garden centers or in stores.
While I was placing an order, I added some rolls of Con-Tact paper. The Con-Tact paper was listed as an Amazon add-on item, which means that you need a $25 minimum order to ship them, even though we were ordering with Prime.
I was at $23.95, so I looked for a small item to push the total over $25. It’s nice if your filler item is something you actually need, so I picked this cabinet door knob for $1.05 for a cabinet I’m building for our daughter.
Two boxes arrived from Amazon:
The box on the right contains the four rolls of Con-Tact. The box on the left? It contains the single cabinet door knob. I started laughing when I opened it!
I realize not everything you order from Amazon ships from the same place, but I would guess it cost more than $1.05 for them to ship that single knob in its own box! Funny, isn’t it?
(I’m still waiting for my edamame seeds to arrive…)
