A couple of weeks ago, we placed an order with the new Amazon Pantry service - a grocery delivery basically, as long as it comes in a tin, jar or packet. It is quite useful at the moment with not having a car. It is £2.99 per delivery (although we got our first free) and has no minimum - unlike most supermarkets - and a lot of the items were cheaper than Tesco. Each item takes up a certain percentage of your box and was great for Pepsi multi-packs and other heavy, bulky stuff, and whatever Lidl don't sell. The box arrived, was nicely packed and we were very happy.
On Thursday we decided to place another order. I ordered 22 items which arrived this morning.......in 22 separate boxes!!! I know Amazon aren't the best at packing but this is ridiculous even for them. Some of the items are quite small, but still one per box when the smallest box is almost 9x7x4 inches! I can't get over the complete waste of materials, the waste of time packing them all, the poor courier who had to make nearly a dozen trips to and from his van and, worst of all, my time unpacking them and then having to recycle everything. They have received a snotty email!

That's nearly as bad as the lady with the M&S delivery of a new dinner service with each item in a different box. Can you use the boxes in your crafting at all EB?I hope if you use the service again you won't get the same hassle.
We've kept the two largest boxes as they are quite sturdy and will be useful if we need to send anything to the boys or whatever, but the rest are not much use. It has taken 3 recycling bags just to deal with all the paper used for padding out the boxes! I reckon it will take another two for all the boxes - even when collapsed.
