I shop online quite often and I suppose you could say I was a lazy cow, ahem… a very busy woman.
Online shopping is fast, you get deals, promotion codes, have an in-depth view of what’s on sale and you don’t need to trek miles and miles to get your shopping. Not to mention getting spotted by the girl you try to avoid because you know she can talk for England and you got shit to do, places to be. Then, you have tons of shopping to carry all the way back home. I’d rather get someone else to do my dirty work. 😂
Plus delivery is often free too, (or around the same price as travel costs) so what’s to lose.
Having an online shopping addiction can get embarrassing. I get deliveries every single day and the delivery man must think I am a millionaire with the amount of stuff I get delivered, little does he know I have spent a whole months wage on complete junk and I’m living off beans on toast for the rest of the month, but I play the game and I let him think I am rich… 😂 Online shopping is wonderful thing but the piles of cardboard boxes which I have to tear up and recycle each day has become a pain in the bum!
The moral of the story is: I have a-lot of cardboard boxes, little bin space, no room left in my recycling bins and neither has my neighbour who still hasn’t found out who the box culprit is, I’m a cheeky cow! He-he!
So with the boxes I’ve been stuck with, I thought I would up-cycle, transform and revamp a few of them into trendy storage boxes.
This WAS a kids bike box which was bought for my niece and now look at it! The gorgeous Chevron fabric I used was sent to me by My Fabrics. It is £5.90 per metre. I have curtains to match too & cushion covers what I made with the left-over fabric.
