I did something I didn't originally want to do a few weeks ago.

I signed up for Amazon Prime.

Yes, I know I should buy locally. Yes, I know Amazon doesn't treat it's employees well. It's basically the Walmart of the Internet, and we all know that Walmart is Evil. And shipping items across the country is a waste of packaging materials and gasoline.

The last reason is actually why I signed up though. The problem I'm having is between my two jobs and the route of my commute, any time I need to go out and get something it's requires a separate trip, usually to multiple places (especially considering some of the items I buy aren't generally available locally, or are just hard to find.) I also live in a densely populated area where the FedEx and UPS trucks are a daily sight on my block. Solo trip in my car on local and highway driving vs. the couriers/postal service already delivering to my neighbors?

I know it probably doesn't add up, and convenience is playing a huge factor here. Especially when we're due for a Frankenstorm, and emergency crank radios aren't really kept in stock in a location where we really don't have many natural disasters :/ (Ordered it 1-day shipping, hopefully the storm won't get too bad until Monday night...)
