Up until now, alcohol companies have only been able to ship their products through UPS and FedEx — not the United States Postal Service — but that could soon be changing.

New legislation being introduced would allow the USPS to mail wine, beer, and other spirits directly to those who are of legal drinking age (in states that allow direct-to-consumer alcohol shipping).

If Congress decides to reverse the ban on alcohol shipping, officials say it could increase the USPS revenue by a projected $180 million.

What are some household items you get shipped to your house that you never would have imagined 5-10 years ago?
