    We got this big box today with this item inside. I'm sure it's happened to you also.

    Of course the inevitable happened.

    That happens to us all the time. It makes Sophie's day.

    I wish I had a picture of mine. I ordered a spoon rest, *just* a spoon rest. It came in a huge box with loads of plastic.

    This is why we pay so much for shipping!

    I ordered a pair of shoes, which came, thankfully, in a shoe-sized box. I left it on the bed to try on the shoes, and Mingo just had to claim it as his own. He's a big cat, but "If I fits, I sits." It sprang apart at the seams, but he still loves it.

    I get injectable meds, two little syringes, that come in a 15' x 18' box. Inside that box is another box. Inside that is a plastic bag. Inside the plastic bag is a smaller plastic bag. Inside that is a blister pack of the two little syringes.

    That IS silly unless it's really needed because of what it is.

    That is absolutely ridiculous.

    Not as ridiculous as your example, @mightyboosh, but still pretty wasteful. My cats didn’t want the box, though, just the packing paper! :)
