first order from woot. Not impressed. Free shipping because im an amazon prime member woopty doo i wouldve rather paid for faster shipping, probably wouldnt help though since took over a week to ship it.
Anyone else remember ordering things from catalogs and waiting 6-8 weeks for delivery? Anyone?
Oh gosh, yes. What’s become of us.
I think I was in second or third grade when Ren & Stimpy was popular. Kraft cheese snacks had a promo where if you sent in 30 of those plastic sticks from the cheese and cracker packs + shipping and handling they’d send you a free backpack.
Why? Why the sticks? Those were in kid’s mouths.
I still have that backpack.
Son had The Fox & the Hound movie and a stuffed Copper. There was a promotion where you could send for a free Todd. For 8 weeks, we heard,
Mommy, where’s Todd?
Daddy, where’s Todd?
I thought I was gonna die. We still joke about it when something takes a long time.
Yes! Omg when you’re a kid you remember everything.
Now I can’t remember what I ordered last week.
I do miss that anticipation a little bit. But since the pandemic I’ve gained a whole new appreciation for not going to big box stores.
Omg we used to send in upcs and box tops for everything - we had the entire Flintstone collection of cups
Does anyone remember when some of the jelly jars had cartoon characters on them so you could use them as a glass later?

We got bowls with cereal characters on the bottom on them (on the inside).
They’re still used, though they’ve had crack lines for a LONG time.
They look like this eBay listing photo:
There were 4 in total, yet the one which got the most fights was the Tony the Tiger bowl.
Here’s the complete collection:
YES!! They now have them free in the store that you can get when you buy X boxes of brand Y cereal. At 50, I buy them all and donate the cereal
