Friday Five: Mail Order

Friday, May 22, 2015
This week's Friday Five:
  1. What is your most recently mail-ordered item? Do people (under the age of 80) mail-order anything anymore? I don't think I've ever mail-ordered anything. I do, however, order a ton of things online that's shipped to me via mail. In fact, I received two packages in the mail today! One is my order from Bobbi Brown (they had their Friends & Family sale last weekend and was offering 20% plus free shipping; I couldn't resist), and the other is my order from Nail Polish Canada (I had a nice cash back cheque from Ebates so, naturally, I spent it on nail polish).

  2. What's a catalog you've always wanted to order from but never have? Ikea. But I never do because I just cannot bring myself to order furniture or home accessories without actually seeing it in person first. How about if all my make-up doesn't fit into that chest, you know? Or is one Billy bookcase enough for my surplus of books? It doesn't even matter if they list all the dimensions; I need to actually see it.

  3. What is physically the largest item you ever mail-ordered? Again, I don't mail-order, but the biggest items I've ever ordered online are winter coats. The biggest one is probably a knee-length Mackage wool and cashmere coat I got a couple years ago. Or possibly my Miss Sixty down parka (that I got for 80% off on Hautelook — one of the best steals I've ever gotten!).

  4. What catalogs do you still receive in the actual mail? None. Everything's digital now, so I just receive tons of promotional e-mails. I do, however, get some awesome fast food coupons in the mail! I quite frequently use the Taco Bell ones.

  5. What are some obscure or unusual catalogs you've received? None. I think my mom used to get some for like, decorative plates or something. But she doesn't get those anymore.
