I don't know if they will catch on, me and my son been doing this since last Oct. I'm sure others are doing this. If you shop Wish, this can be useful if you don't know about this already.

For Christmas, I decided to shop on wish.com for my 2 boys Christmas presents. I spent $50 on each. I did this in Oct just to make sure everything arrived on time for Christmas. About $25 worth of stuff showed up two weeks after the posted delivery date.

Wish has a feature that allows you to track your packages and if they don't arrive on the estimated delivery date, after waiting a week longer, you can contact the automated customer support chat and they refund your money. I opt for wish cash.

Once your package reaches customs, and since everything comes from China, the tracking numbers are not trackable with USPS. So they can't use their tracking numbers to tell if your packages had arrived.

So Basically since like December, I've been spending the same $25. A week after the expected delivery date, I just click on Customer Support and say I didn't get the packages. Get my refund and buy more.

you greedy bugger
The only thing I really buy on there is blutooth headphones. They are cheap and don't last very long. So I'm always going thru'em. My son KC likes to think that what ever belongs to dad, belongs to him also. Once he leaves the house with a pair, they are never seen again

@Moonbaby I make it a habit of not getting the munchies before I go shopping for groceries. Half of my bill was brownie mixes.
Really? If i dont smoke before i go to the grocery store i usually come home with like 4000 calories and have to go back tomorrow.

As to the wish stuff, theres enough chinese garbage in landfills. A life goal of mine is to use as little as possible and to put as little trash into the landfill i can. Chinese goods are typically disposable, i look for ones that are rebuildable, and will still have value after im dead.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $45.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $45.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $45.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $45.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Im securing a squat tonight that should be a good long term squat. Also im playing a show tonight.
Just go to Barcelona and got lost on my way to my hostel. I walked into a corner store and asked for directions, and a guy who didn’t speak any English or know anything about me pointed to where i need to go and gave me a sticker that said “Everyone hates the police!”. I’m definitely in the right place😄!
Macon for a super hot minute. Who what when where?
Finished an initial draft of a floorplan for my new van:
A lot has happened since returning to California. Just two days after returning from the road, I grew the courage to leave my abusive SO and stop hiding her abuse. I returned to my hometown in the Bay Area; I’m now going to stay housed up here until next summer as I recover from trauma and save up for my next adventure. I’ve just gotten a job offer, and will be renting a room of my own here!
I learned a lot about myself and the world on the road, but I know vagabonding is the life for me!
I never did complete an update here, did I?
Well, I rubbertramped all across the country, back from Boston with a fellow moderator from R&V. We drove from there to Las Vegas over the course of a month! I saw 4 national parks, 30 states, and crossed over 6000+ miles. I came back to Los Angeles on June 15th, having achieved my goal of hitchhiking the entire country, and was on the road for over two months.
3 weeks of CDL training starting Monday. Im so excited. Living in semi is an upgrade from living in the van, especially since your getting paid for it! Hells yea!!!
A list of all the magic stores in the U.S. would be a sick feature on stp. Imagine you get off the train desperately in need of smokes and a slam, but you got ran off every corner... Dont worry stp knows exactly where you can get pall malls and some steelies with those foodies you picked up in the last town.
