After 15-hour workdays and holiday illness, I'm finally posting my letter crap. (I was already working on the post when your reminder email arrived, TT - promise!) Fun fact - I actually "opened" my box twice. Once when it arrived in the morning, and once again in the afternoon because I had re-taped it to keep my family from snooping in it while I was gone.
Fedex told me the box was 24x24x26 and 45 pounds... dimensions were accurate but the package was in reality much lighter. And it rattled as I carried it.
First glimpse upon opening.
Cats supposedly love Bet on Cold's, but mine refused to have anything to do with it and only supervised from a distance. She might have thought the big box in her space was some kind of a threat.
Here's the full spread:
- One men's dress coat, size large, on hanger. Appropriated by my 15 year old son even though his style tends more toward pop culture shirts and jeans.
- Two very puffy bed pillows. These are still being held hostage by me because everyone wanted to claim them.
- One pair size 10.5 women's Saucony shoes, complete with RMA from the original purchaser. Like her, they were slightly too snug for me, but fit my 16 year old daughter perfectly.
- Three size 34B sports bras. Still looking for a good home. From others' posts, I assume there must have been a surplus of this size.
- One navy blue queen size comforter. Since I had ordered a queen size navy blue comforter from another company the day before this package arrived, I was a bit taken aback. Is Woot dabbling in mind-reading now? Put to immediate use, of course.
- One Konjac sponge. I had never heard of this, but it was eagerly claimed by my teenage daughter.
- One Dell laptop backpack. Also very similar to an item I had recently purchased... with three teens, we burn through backpacks quickly at my place. Son has claimed this as well.
- Art kit in pink case. My college student daughter loves this one... she is a school/art supply hoarder.
- One spice rack, which came in its own box. Definitely need to find wall space for this... the spices currently live in a cupboard way over my head.
- One roaster rack. Put to good use on Christmas Day.
- One gaming case for an early edition iPod Touch. If I knew where mine went, this could actually be used someday.
- One garden hose wall mount thing... I intend to use it as a fancy, wall-mounted cup holder instead.
- One lenticular picture of elephants. Appropriately, this went into my family's White Elephant gift exchange, and is now probably adorning the wall of my pre-teen niece.
- 38 high-bounce balls, the source of all the rattling as I carried the box. All three teens tried to claim these for their own - yes, that speaks volumes about the maturity level at my place.
Overall, a very non-disappointing and mostly useful assortment of crap. Thanks again to TT and to Kristen in the warehouse for all the hard work put in to get these out to us. It was great fun anticipating my box and seeing what everyone else got too! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to find out what happens to high-bounce balls in a three story drop when it's below zero outside...
