Vegan Meatball Subs

I think my husband has an online shopping addiction.

Is there a support group for this sort of thing?

Literally, we’ll be relaxing and, out of nowhere, he says, “Let’s buy stuff. What can we buy?” and he whips out his phone and starts trolling sites.

The other day I just mentioned in passing that I wanted a new toilet brush (I have big dreams, I realize this) and he immediately was like, “Yes! I will get you one!!!! What else do you need?!?!?!” and it was ordered within minutes. I’m not sure what the draw is. My theory is it’s the boxes. I swear we received 18 boxes last week all with individual treats. Like, he doesn’t bundle his orders. He’ll buy things from the same site, days apart. Is there a better way to do this, hun?

The best was when he ordered Dollar Store brand laundry detergent from Amazon. Like.

    Lol.. your story. I’m like that sometimes. How can you not be with two day free shipping? Plus getting things in the mail is freaking fun (maybe let me know if you find that support group :). I usually don’t dig on vegan fare unless I have to, but these look and sound amazing!
