Costco same site splits orders, Costco online/Costco grocery, doesn't add up for free shipping.
Google Express likewise doesn't aggregate merchandise from different vendors to add up to free shipping.

Memorial day reminded me of this one---

Seeing all these pictures posted of well done meats- some of which is placed in awful store bought buns or taco shells from a box. Spending so much effort on the meat and then pairing it with mediocre buns etc...
I just don't get it-

Tall narrow food containers.
Make them short and wide for easier access and so I don't have to get my hands dirty.

LPT: Cut the buns from the top down, not on the side. A bit weird but works well.
