    Was going through the thread on stimulus checks and saw a couple of posts that led me to decide to create this one.

    Does anyone else put things you want in and out of online shopping carts repeatedly because you just can't pull the trigger?

    OR, go to buy something on Amazon (or wherever) and end up buying something your wife/husband/child has previously put in the shopping cart, but forgot to remove?

    I've put things in and out of a shopping cart so many times with indecision, I've probably crashed Amazon's server at some point. And I've been in a hurry and bought things at least twice that my wife previously put in the cart but decided not to buy and didn't remove.

    The internet is great for me endlessly researching purchases, but has probably significantly worsened my indecision tendencies. I've researched myself out of every buying things many, many times. Probably for the best, as it was clearly a "want" and not a "need" or I would have completed a transaction.

    I mainly use wish lists for stuff like that. I dont put anything in a cart that I don't intend to buy at some point. I put little things like strings and picks in my amazon cart for periods of time and they will sit there until my wife finishes her shopping and completes the order.

    I put things in the cart, when I have chosen everything I go through the cart, pick the best one and delete the rest.

    No, but I always seem to get one of those online carts with a wobbly wheel......
