    Mine too. She finds the cheapest and best way possible..

    But for convenience sake and my loads of swaps that I do, it would be to time consuming on my end to weigh 40 packages/boxes and get back to everyone on the postage amount when I could very well have a standard $4.95 postage amount.. It really comes down to whats 'your' worth? Id rather spend mine quilting..

    I use Paypal shipping or USPS.com to ship and I can check the best rates there, but people want to know ahead of time what shipping will cost so I haven't been using Parcel post at all.

    It is even harder for my Etsy shops because I have to put it in at the time I list the item, so I will start adding a note in the listing that I will check parcel post rates if they want it. It is really only worth while if it is over 5 pounds.

    Fabric is heavy and that can add up fast so I will remember to check all the sources. I hate to spend money on the shipping!
