Every Ounce Counts When Shipping Packages

I mailed an item out yesterday that needed to be less than 3 pounds (cheaper cost). The box itself was already 1 lb 4.15oz.

My tip: Trim a little bit of box side flaps to reduce some cardboard weight. Do not trim entirely if it's a larger box because all flaps on boxes are designed for safe/sturdy transportation. For what I was shipping (sweater), it was completely fine to cut off some cardboard and my box reduced to 1 lb 2.35 oz.

That helped because my box with the sweater ended up being just a little under 3 lbs!

My mom got a letter from her post office that said an additional 15cent stamp would have to be bought to go with the forever stamps. I don't remember the prices for sending pigs, but it was outrageous. New prices take effect Jan. 27
