Things that have arrived in the mail

The brown boxes arrived regularly at my door long before corona times. If it was needed and could be delivered, it's been delivered here. I did grocery delivery before it was cool or encouraged - then went back to physical grocery shopping which is now both regrettable but also the surest, quickest way to get groceries - and have bought the 20 pack of TP for delivery and coffee for delivery and dog food for delivery etc etc on and on you get the picture for quite a few years. I don't like to waste my time in stores unless it's the small shops in any small town or the home section of Marshalls/TJMaxx. Now that I have nothing but time, I am forced to do delivery with the exception of my regular TP delivery...fucking forget it. What has arrived since mid-March (Amazon links are affiliate links), falls into one of three categories: 1) make house more comfortable/functional since we are always in it 2) food 3) try to salvage end of birthday month. These are typical buys for the most part, except by this time of year I wouldn't be sparing a thought or spending a dime on this house, all energy would be on the shore house for upkeep and improvements. And I would still be ordering my toilet paper and keeping a good stock of it instead of hunting for it in stores like a rare jewel, thankyouverymuch.

Health & Beauty items we ran out of: toothpaste, NYX Micellar water, Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser, Metagenics vitamins - I typically get them from my acupuncturist but I haven't been in so I had to order through her link

Dog items we ran out of: Dry food, wet food, treats (standard Chewy purchase with about 10 extra days for delivery)

Books from Target to meet a $35 minimum order threshold when I was ordering dry good groceries: The Golden Hour by Beatriz Williams and The Boy From the Woods by Harlan Coben

Birthday money purchases: Pranayama Wrap from Athleta in fuschia (it was 50% off, not into paying $89 for a freaking wrap), Buxom lipstick in Dolly Dreamer, aforementioned books, Birkenstock flip flops from Dick's 

Four plants from Bloombox (delivering to eight counties in PA)

Coming this week: an O-Cedar EasyWring Microfiber Spin Mop and Bucket Cleaning System (have you all seen @gocleanco on Instagram? child, they will have you cleaning and looking forward to it)

Has anything arrived at your house? In the norm or outside of it? I typically don't buy books as much as I have this past month+, but everything else is standard except if I'm buying hand soap instead of making it, I usually buy it from Homegoods/TJMaxx.
