So I thought I would treat myself to Arie. Basic doll, no outfit, cute little wig, and I was fine until they factored in the shipping. Twenty percent of the cost of the doll, to ship her here from Korea? I don’t think so!* I will keep that money in savings, and the next time one of my girls is ready to order from DOD, I’ll jump in and split the shipping.
I should probably also buy stock in the company that makes packing peanuts.
*In relating this to Trainman, he said that is actually about right for overnight shipping to/from overseas. He’s a broker; they do that sort of thing all the time.
It took me over a year to get used to the idea of spending $20+ for a skein of sock yarn. I suppose I will adjust to this in time, but still...
