These are photos of a box and it’s contents shipped to me from Amazon.com The contents consisted of two CDs and a Magazine. The box was big enough hold this 100 times over. Can you say absurd? I knew you could….
The box right after it was opened.
Someone suggested to me that Amazon.com uses "standardized packaging" to save on costs. However, I often order 2-3 CDs at a time and that same amount of merchandise has arrived from Amazon.com in small (almost form-fitting) boxes, big envelopes with bubble wrap insulation, medium sized boxes with some bubble insulation like you see above and lastly the box as shown above (that one takes the cake).
I’m glad I didn’t pay for shipping. 🙂
