Boxed In

I am addicted to internet shopping. In general, this isn't a terrible thing. It's convenient and I get some pretty decent deals. (Mostly overstock.com.)

As a result of all my mail orders, though, my apartment is being overrun by cardboard boxes. I'm usually too lazy to break them down after I take them apart to play with my toys, so after a while I just find my living room filled with the remains of packaging materials.

Now I'm probably just going to attract roaches.

Does cardboard attract roaches?

I was gonna say that you could just furnish your whole apartment with "cardboard box" style decor. Why not? ... But the roach comment alarmed me. Is that really true? why would a cardboard box attract a roach? Cause it's dark inside?

I'm told that cardboard glue attracts roaches. They somehow feed on it. That just grosses me out.

There are months where I am seriously in trouble because of eBay. That is my vice. But it is like feast of famine. Also, deepdiscountdvd.com. They have cheap dvd's and it is so easy to just click and buy! I have to stop!!!! LOL

Oh, not to post twice... duh, but cardboard does attract spiders. They love the smell or something like that. I live in GA, and they say never to store stuff in shoe boxes, etc, cause Brown Recluse spiders love them. EEK!

Ewww... now I will never keep a cardboard box around again!! Yikes!

I, unfortunately, appear to have an affinity for cardboard boxes.

And spiders are, like, worse than roaches.

I love the big 'O'! And my garage is full of empty cardboard boxes and packing material. Not sure why? It's not like it's that sentimental...guess I'm just lazy :)
