It’s all too easy to buy everything—and we mean everything—you could ever need on Amazon, especially if you’re a Prime customer. The online megastore stocks $1,000 sofas all the way down to $3 bottles of air freshener, and that’s just in the Home category. While we can’t emphasize enough the importance of shopping small and local as often as possible, we also know that sometimes it’s hard to resist the convenience of making household purchases from your sofa (especially if you live in a city like New York where running errands is its own kind of torture).
