As a husband married to a serial online shopper, my life has taken an unexpected twist. While I adore my wife's enthusiasm for all things trendy, dealing with her unwanted purchases has become quite the adventure.

Picture this: Boxes upon boxes piling up in our living room, each filled with items that didn't quite meet her expectations. My role as the return guru has become an essential part of our household dynamics. I've become intimately familiar with return policies, tracking numbers, and the intricate process of printing labels.

But let's be honest, it's not all sunshine and rainbows. There have been moments of frustration, where I've questioned the necessity of buying multiple variations of the same item or those impulse purchases that only gather dust in our closets.

However, I've come to appreciate the silver lining. Amidst the hassle of returns, we've had the opportunity to have honest conversations about spending habits and finding a balance between indulging in retail therapy and making mindful purchases.

Navigating the world of unwanted online purchases has also allowed me to showcase my problem-solving skills. From finding creative storage solutions for the overflow of items to becoming a pro at negotiating return shipping fees, I've developed a unique set of skills that I never thought I'd possess.

So, dear fellow spouses in similar situations, let's embrace the quirks and challenges that come with living with a serial online shopper. Let's support our partners' love for fashion and trends while gently reminding them of the importance of thoughtful purchases. And, of course, let's continue honing our return guru skills, because the journey of a serial online shopper's unwanted purchases is never-ending.
