What is the last thing you ordered from Amazon?

Just thought this might be something fun to do!  :)

The last thing I ordered from Amazon.com was my Kindle Fire. I'm about to purchase my husband one soon I think... he can't contain his jealousy!  :P

What is the last thing you ordered?

Fun idea for a thread!

Since I order so-o-o much stuff from Azon, I had to go check my orders. Two days ago, I ordered some pretty pricey bras for my daughters. The painful thing is, I had to order them in four different sizes, since who knows which size will really fit. The wonderful thing is, of course, that I will be able to quickly and easily return the ones that don't, because it's Amazon!!!

Fun thread.

A cheese slicer. I had one with a wooden handle like this and it had finally died a while ago. So I got a similar one.

A very pretty purple gel back cover for my Fire 8.9 HDX.  It came with a lightweight cleaning cloth and 3 little stylus pens.  Cloth and pens are meh, but the cover thingy is perfect.

Extra mop heads for my Dirt Devil steam mop, they should be here tomorrow.  Pretty exciting...
A book, I think, is very like a little golden door.
That takes me into places where I've never been before.
It leads me into fairyland or countries strange and far.
And, best of all, the golden door always stands ajar. - Adelaide Love

A Bluetooth receiver for my 'home entertainment center'. It's replacing one which is truly a triumph of marketing over substance.

Now I can stream audio from all my IOS/Android devices to my sound system.

The last thing I ordered was a Kindle book....


Other than Kindle books, the last two things I ordered were pretty boring. TurboTax and batteries.

Edited the next day, to add:  
I just ordered something less boring, to me anyway - -

Old-timey Panasonic tape recorder.

3-inch dynamic speaker for monophonic sound
1-touch recording
Built-in high-sensitivity condenser microphone
Operates on 4 C batteries (not included)

Still manufactured in some afro-rocking, bell-bottomed wormhole and QUALIFIES FOR FREE SHIPPING!  I'm going to order another one of these in 2024 and have it drone-delivered to my front yard, just because.

Raw honey so I can make truffle bath melts.  You'd think honey that they put less work into would be cheaper, but noooo...  At least Amazon had it a fair bit cheaper than all the specialty and health food shops around here that charge you a premium just for walking in the door.
