How do you dispose of your "evidence" if you still live at home (with parent(s) )?

This is probably a goofy question but I was wondering about it while I was disposing of my stuff today. I still live at home while finishing school so I can't openly throw my boxes in the garbage.

This may be extreme but I break down the shipping boxes and product boxes and such and put them in a shopping bag and throw them in the backseat of my car and get rid of them at the wal-mart trashcan down the road since I go there often or in the trashcans in the parking lot at the college. Just last week I had an embarrassing incident where I was trying to shove a shopping bag full of "evidence" into a school trashcan and it broke open and stuff went all over the ground and of course there was a guy sitting in his truck RIGHT IN FRONT of the trashcan and saw the whole thing, one box with a HUGE pic of a vibrator on it landed in plain view of him. I just wanted to die! I didn't even look up I stuffed it in and got the hell outta there. Today I had my we-vibe box hidden in the side of my jacket like I'm smuggling contraband and did a quick drop in the trashcan on my way to class and started to laugh to myself at how ridiculous it is.

It's SO stupid but I have no other way. My mom works midnights so shes in bed when the mailman comes and I can intercept before she sees but she has seen some and I lied and told her it's from a "girly" site to review beauty stuff lol!

So, what do you do if you still live at home?

Just put it in the kitchen trash, then dump my bedroom trash on top of it (usually tissues, crumpled notebook paper, etc). Gets hidden quickly and no one knows. The boxes and packing paper are innocuous enough to not be commented on, as we're leisurely packing things for a move in two years.

I wish I could be that way. I mean she did laugh about finding the one but I don't know how she feels about that stuff or what she would think if she knew how many things I actually have.

She did see the all over body infrared massasger I got from here with the massage oil and didn't say anything but that really isn't sexual.

I live with my boyfriend and he knows about toys, but I don't always want him to see right away. I am careful to rip up packaging, and hide it inside of other things in the trash. I know he's not going to go digging in the trash, so it's easy to just put packaging under other things.

Honestly, I show my mom (and mother in law) all my goodies LOL. I don't have to hide anything and didn't have to back when I was still living with them. Ive always had that open personality with them. Besides, I've even made suggestions for them and they've thanked me for it! LOL

I've always recycled my packaging. When I lived with my parents I would just save the boxes up in my room and recycle them. If I did need to throw something out, I would give it to my fiance, because his trash gets picked up and my dad has to burn the trash at my parents house.

Considering my mother knows about everything I order here I don't ever feel the need to be all sneaky about it.
Heck, unless it's a kinky item she's likely to want one herself. xD

I break them down at home and throw them in our large trash can outside. But my parents play blissully ignorant.

I tend to keep the package that the items come in as long as it's not too bulky, so the only thing I usually have to worry about is A) where to hide the items where my parents will not look and B) how to get rid of the box/papers the items shipped in. B is usually easier than A.

I tend to stalk the trash truck and then just throw it away right before the truck comes by...might be a bit elaborate

Hehe! I'm with you there girly! When my husband was deployed I moved back to stay with my parents. I remember intercepting my first package and telling my parents it was a surprise from the hubby. little did they know! I broke everything down, concealed it in my room somewhere for three months until I moved back. I put the garbage right there in my suitcase! lol Looking back, I probably could have done it an easier way!

Great post btw! Should be interesting!!

My grandmother knows what I do, so I just toss my trash whenever. (We have large trash bins.) She doesn't mind me reviewing adult items, she's just glad I'm not spending money I don't have. The sudden receiving of packages concerned her and the 'free' part of the review program erased her worries.

Is your caps lock broken or your shift key stuck? (Just wondering, as all caps seems like yelling over the internet.)

I unfold, then refold boxes inside out to dispose of them.

My parents don't generally look through the trash. I just cram it in the kitchen trash can and it gets covered pretty quickly...

That's a good idea!
I'm going to see if there is a place nearby that recycles cardboard so I don't have to trash it, I feel bad doing that.

My mom won't like, dig. But I'm worried since the bags are clear that stuff will shift and like a vibe box with a pic will be pressed up against the outside. I might not care AS much if my grandma didn't live here. I can only imagine what she would say/think if she knew.

Luckily, I don't live with my parents, and my husband likes seeing me like a kid on Christmas morning every time I get a package

I don't live with my parents. But if I did, I'd probably show my mom what I got. I don't think she's comfortable knowing her daughter uses toys, but she's not against them! Same with my mother in law. When hubby and I were moving, we asked her to help and some how my first vibe wound up in the trunk of her car for a few months till her 17 year old daughter came across it. Her, my father in law, and my sister in law, all got a good look at it. Thank God it was just a tiny traditional vibe. Lucky for me I got to hear about the mother in laws collection.

I used to do something very similar except the boxes were smaller so I could just fit them into a backpack. Then I just leave them in the trunk until I'm visiting somewhere far from my house and just dump them in a community recycling bin outside of someone's apartments.

When I received a few packages in college, I would fold the boxes inside out and walk down a long halllway. Down three flights of stairs to the main lobby were the trash and recycling bins were located. I would get stopped in the hallways and asked about my day and what I was carrying. It was soooooo embarrassing.
Did I mention it was a co-ed building?

I now live at home taking online college. It was a pain in the butt to hide everything for the move back home. Luckily most of the toys fit in a tool lock box. So when the parents asked I could say that's where I was hiding my valueables. (lol)

When I receive packages at home I try to schedule them to come in during a time I know I will be ordering text books. But by then you rake in enough points for a handful of items and the box mailed is quite larger than what textbooks should fit it. The parents get very suspicious and ask me what's inside. I always say textbooks. Then say say; oh open it down here so we can take a look at what you'll be studying this semester. I haven't figured anything clever yet to say about that so I usually pretent I diden't hear anything and run upstairs. >_> (smooooooth)

I have a trash can in my room. I'm kinda paranoid and run everything threw a paper shredder. XD
Then I go threw the scrapes and see if I can read anything on them. If I can I hand cut the scraps down to unreadable size. Then I mix the package scraps with normal trash like old school notes and tissues. Double bag it and personally take it to the curb side trash.

We recycle packing boxes so I tear off the shipping label and hand it over to be used to hold paperwork and knitting supplies. I am so thankfully I leaned to buy silicone toys so the boxes do not have that "new sex toy smell".

I used to live with a few roommates that I wanted to hide my addiction from, so I would just put everything in a garbage bag and throw it out at my mom's apartment (big garbage can). I now live in an apartment with a roommate who fully knows my addiction, so now I just recycle everything. I will say that I take the stuff out at night, or at least mix it all in a bag so no one will see something when I'm carrying it. How do you explain when you get big boxes in the mail, and your mom is like I want to see? lol Although, that is lucks she's normally in bed when mailmen comes, but on days he's earlier or later?
