how to know when spending more for free shipping is a good deal

Going to purchase something online. Shipping is expensive. A larger purchase will get me free shipping, but the cost would be more than the cost of the smaller purchase plus shipping. How do you analyze decisions like this? [more inside]

Peppermint, spearmint, wintergreen, ginger, cinnamon, liquorice, cool honey, but sadly not creme de menthe. One of every kind of Altoids mints.

For a present, I want to buy one of every different flavor of Altoids mints (just the regular size mints, not the gum or smalls). The problem is that they seem to only be sold in bulk. Is there anywhere online that will sell me every variety individually? Or does anyone know a place in the Orange County, CA area that stocks the entire range of Altoids?

This isn't one of the "figure flaws" they list in magazines.

I'm just under 5'5". Unusually (I think?) for someone of average height, I have long legs *and* a long-ish waist. This is possible because the distance between my shoulders and under-arms is, apparently, according to the shirts of the world, unusually short. [more inside]

Sturdy and Steady.

Please give me your suggestions for large, very sturdy grocery/laundry carts. Said cart will have to do duty carrying groceries from my parking space to my apartment (which is across and down the street) but more importantly, it must be able to handle 1-2 35 pound containers of cat litter on occasion, when I need to buy for the boys. Good wheels are a must for when the weather gets snowy, but I do have an elevator (after about 4 steps). Price is not a huge issue, but I would love to keep it under 75$.

But I'm looking to go on a special-occasion shopping trip for a special-occasion dress (the event being a spring wedding in London and the excuse being to reward myself for when/if I lose 10+ straggler lbs.)
