For some unknown reasons Mouser had split my single order into two parts. The first, largest part arrived today. The rest should arrive soon, too. The box is just a box:

The package.

Well, there are a lot of components inside, packed in two larger bags:

Inside, in yet smaller bags, are all the components:

Meanwhile I have learned that for some components, like resistors and capacitors, it is cheaper to buy at least 10 instead of just one or few. One should carefully check unit prices and not necessarily stick exactly to a given BOM (“bill of materials”).

The second delivery will add several more resistors and a few more headers.
