Spoilers for season one ahead.
The Monterey Five have a lot on their plate. When we last left off with the group — two years ago in our world, one year for them — they were moving on after that fateful night.
Bound together forever, the five women of “Big Little Lies” could not be more different.
But let’s be real here: we all know a Jane or a Madeline or a Renata. Maybe you are one of them. Regardless, we all have some of idea of what makes the characters tick. But nothing gives you insight into what a person is like more than the Notes app on their phone — and their Amazon shopping carts.
Amazon carts: They are so big and full of secrets (oops, wrong universe).
And no matter what is going on in your life *cough, cough, murder investigation,* Amazon is always there for you. So, peep what the ladies of Monterey have in their shopping carts and take an intimate look into their big little lives.
Jane: Mom to Ziggy; best friend to Madeline; loves to run; just found out her rapist was married to one of her other best friends, Celeste; likes running to the edges of cliffs and taking her favorite coffee barista to a charity gala.
Celeste: Mom to twins, Max and Josh; once upon a time high-power attorney; best friend to Madeline; extremely rich; married to the late Perry; victim of abuse; deserves to practice self-care.
