We All Have The Weirdest Shit In Our Amazon "Saved For Later"

We asked people to reveal the weirdest items in their Amazon cart.

Posted on

You know that "saved for later" section, found underneath your Amazon cart page?

It's where you move stuff when you kinda want something, but either can't or don't want to get it right now. It's an easily forgotten but fascinating portrait of the people we once were, or the people we thought we were.

But be honest: how often do you EVER end up actually buying the stuff you save there?

We asked BuzzFeed writers to look in their Amazon "saved for later" sections and show us what they found there.

"There is something seriously wrong with my Amazon account! I only use my account once every couple months and each time I do, my 'Saved For Later' list is filled with items I've never even heard of before, let alone browsed or wanted to purchase at a later date. I have to frequently clear it out only to come back and see it filled again."
