Boycotting Amazon is easy. I'm sure only a percentage of the time you use same or next day shipping, you actually need it. More often it's about impulse buying or impatience.

The times you do need it, better planning could often have obviated the need for it.

The rare times you still need it, there's always real stores you can go to for most categories of items.

The remaining times it's still needed should be very rare. You can think of Amazon as a fallback you only need in rare times of desperation than your go-to place for buying in general.
