At bottom, I agree. I only get stuff sent when there’s a box coming anyway and I can make up to the shipping weight with comestibles, DVDs books etc. The marmalade gets transferred to plastic tubs, saves loads of weight.
Maybe one day I’ll learn how to make it. Meantime I can save money because I know how to do plumbing, tiling, general building …
I don’t understand why one would not bring tools and equipment [pace the lawn mower - never had a lawn]. I’ve got £100’s of tools which have helped me rebuild houses, flats., camper van.
Books can be had for 1p on AMZ UK. I’d rather dump those - and I have, metres of shelves-worth - than not take my tools everywhere.
An hour’s work chasing channels with my mini-breaker to take cabling is ‘earning me’ the cost of Gaston/Pablo/Fritz doing it and paying him. Buys a lot of marmalade!
