WE'VE all been there - you've got a little bit carried away with your online shopping and now have to somehow justify your spending habits to your partner when you can barely explain them to yourself. We get it.
Alternatively, you could sneakily ask your delivery driver to hide your parcels so your other half in order to save yourself that awkward conversation entirely. Mum-of-four Alexis Thomas knows a thing or two about this after she went a little overboard on Amazon Prime Day last month. The army wife - who lives in Tokyo, Japan - was staying at her mother-in-law's home in the US when she impulse bought a mini fridge... despite the fact that her husband joked that her Amazon habit was "getting out of control". Worried about what her husband might say about this slightly impractical purchase - seriously, how are they going to get a mini fridge back to Japan? - Alexis then had a stroke of genius. She toldCafe Mom: "I updated my account to [ask to] hide them from my husband!" Unfortunately, this didn't quite go to plan when her delivery driver thought covering the enormous box with a door mat was a good idea. The "sorry we missed you card" read: "I hid your package from your husband. They are under the rug. UPS." Sharing an image onFacebookof the mini fridge sitting on her mother-in-law's doorstep inveryplain sight, Alexis wrote: "UPS this is not what I meant lol." Alexis' post has since racked up over 44,000 shares - and users have been debating whether or not the driver deserves a promotion. One replied: "He seems so proud to have achieved this goal for you too."
