    On Monday the 5th I mailed a manilla envelope to BKinCO containing the following:
    2 ziplock bags, each containing 20 2 1/2" strips, and a slip
    of paper with a return address label.
    1 self addressed/stamped manilla envelope.

    Today, the 9th, I opened my mailbox to find one ziplock baggie with fabric strips just sitting there! No envelope.. nothing else. BKinCO is out of town, so don't know yet if she received my other items. Good thing I had that return address label inside the baggie :thumbup: Just wanted to give everyone a heads up to include your return address INSIDE your package as well as on the outside.

    I got a package today and inside it had my addy instead of the return address. I wondered why she did that now I know. Thanks for the info. I will have to remember to do that from now on.

    My Mom always, always, always did that when she mailed a package. So, do you THINK I might have learned that from her?? :oops:

    Wow, I never would have thought to but my return addy in the baggie. Great thinking.

    My Mom does this to. I forget, but it's a great idea. Glad it worked for you.

    Thank you for letting us know that.

    Perfect timing for me as I am packing up a lot of packages to go in the mail again for Monday morning.

    I sent six packages out this last week and have not heard back from anyone of them that they received there packages. Hopefully they all got to where they needed to go?

    I know I will make this a practice from now on!

    Thank you for sharing this!

    My DH used to work for the post office. And I worked briefly for Fed Ex. I put the TO" address as well as my return address inside packages.

    I always include both addresses. Learned that from deployment care packages.

    I once received a shoe in a clear bag from the USPS. I'd purchased shoes online. The other shoe and the packaging were damaged so they sent the one good shoe to me. Goofy.
