Amazon.com Haul

Hi readers!

Today I’m sharing with you a huge haul I did on Amazon.com back in May. If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen a picture of this already.

I’ll be starting to post reviews of these items soon, and saying that I paid “$X + sh.” is kind of misleading so I thought doing a post about this order would help. You’ll find out why I say it’s misleading below the picture.

$ Note: all prices are in US dollars. $

If you’ve been following me for a bit you know that I’ve developed a little obsession with Korean brands. It’s a brand new market for me and most of them have the cutest packaging for their products.

While doing some research on products I came across the seller Rescue Warrior Inc and found that they had really good prices. I looked up their shipping details and shipping to Canada STARTS at $20. YIKES! I looked through their products and found that they had lots that I wanted. I added them all to my shopping cart to see how much shipping would be. I figured if I buy, let’s say 20 items, and shipping is around $20, that kind of makes it $1 shipping per item which I can justify.

I ordered 19 items and shipping came up to $22.38, which makes it about $1.18 per item. I always divide the shipping by the number of items in my order to calculate the approximate total price of every item. Do you do that too?

Let’s take a look at my order:

Ok, so maybe I went a bit crazy with this order, tee-hee! 😉 I don’t usually make big purchases like this.

I also received a bunch of samples with this order, which is always fun:

There you have it, my crazy order from Amazon.

Oh, and in case you noticed duplicates, I’m starting to save up for an upcoming giveaway…! 🙂

How do you justify shipping costs when you order online?
