What the craziest packaging you've had fluff come in?

I had some weird packaging come sometimes, and I don't mind, it just cracks me up sometimes! I've had a oatmeal box turned inside out, dipes wrapped in a garbage bag and taped, various packages turned inside out.

What's the strangest way you've received fluffy mail?

I got some diapers in a cereal box that had been turned inside out.

I also got an EZ2Nurse pillow that was shipped in a couple trash bags and totally covered in packaging tape.

Both packagings worked just fine, but sure were funny.

I got one wrapped in printer paper....I wasn't too happy about that one, it could have easily gotten broken and then I would have been out of luck.

BUT, I normally do recycle the poly mailers I get. I just open them carefully and then use tape to close them when I mail something.

I re-use poly-mailers as much as I can I try to re-cycle and I hope the mamas I send to don't mind. I figure it's another green (and crunchy) initiative

I recently received an order (a NB fitted) from a HC WAHM that was just stuffed in a paper lunch sack, with one strip of electrician's tape across the open end. Shocked the diaper made it across the country, and appalled that a WAHM would care so little about properly packaging an order.

I got my mama cloth sampler pack in an inside out cereal box (it was cut down some) and I got my dryer balls in some thick mailer paper doubled up and taped really well.

Not the funniest but I received a BG Organic that had been packed in a manilla envelope. The seam on the back of the envelope had come unglued but the diaper was still in there! It was repackaged by the PO.
