I pretty much get a package everyday because nothing makes me happier than skipping an uncertain parking situation, searching for the exact item I’m looking for and then, of course, waiting in line. And sure, it’s easy to click and add to cart a new lipstick, but what about those BIG purchases? Say, a new mattress? After all, we spend a third of our lives on our mattress, making it pretty much one of the most important purchases we can make.
