Great thread, would read again.

Please tell us what it is.

And maybe address get it addressed to you and not in your parent's name, then just tell them that if a package arrives for you, you want to open it.

I wanna buy some things too without anyone knowing...any ideas?

I guess I'm in the same situation as Tom, just the..."product" might be a little "different".

No matter what you do, your parents will find out so just bite the bullet and let them know. What are you guys trying to buy that you don't want people to know about anyway???

At any rate, you could try getting a PO box, but they will eventually find out about that too, and I don't know how many places will actually deliver to a PO box.

When you get your own place you can buy stuff without your parents knowing.

unless you are buying this (caution... not G rated) Then just ship it to your house, and tell you parents it cost $5, so they don't freak, and that you'd like them to not open it.
