    I ALWAYS use flat rate AND go to the USPS.com to pay, print & schedule
    for a pickup.
    You can save money by doing it online. A flat rate padded envelope only
    costs me $5.10 to mail if I do it online, if I take it to the post office to have
    mailed it will cost $5.30. Now twenty cents may not sound like much of a
    savings, but it all adds up.

    I LOVE the pickup service the most. I don't have to go to PO anymore and
    stand in line waiting, even though my PO is fairly small they never seem to
    have enough people working the counter (usually only 1 person).

    I HIGHLY recommend setting up a USPS.com account.

    Just my opinion though.

    Great packages coming in!

    A clue for my SP: I live three miles from the country you were born in!

    I agree with doing postage on-line, but depending on the weight, going First Class package using a manilla envelope will save a bunch also, especially if you have a PayPal account. I just did the postage for a quilting swap on another site, and since the package only weighed 12 oz., it was much cheaper to use First Class package rate through PayPal/shipnow -- $2.99 vs. $5.10 with USPS.com. And that includes tracking. I wish USPS would allow First Class on their website, but they don't which is why I go through Paypal.

    Shipping FLAT RATE (as most of us do) we can pack it as full as we want regardless of the weight, for ONE FLAT RATE. Yes, your 12 oz pkg would be cheaper because it's just 12 oz. If we were mailing just a tiny bit we would go that route as well, but like I said, most of us pack to the max and flat rate is the best way to go to get more bang for your buck.

    I think I will also. Been years since I've used postal for anything.

    I haven't had time to be on the board lately. Busy, busy! My SP's pkg will go out before deadline. I am making something and need to finish it between all the other busy work I'm doing. I don't even have time to look for clues for my own package! Too many projects and too many deadlines plus my sons knee surgery Tuesday. Miss the fun. Will try to play catch up soon.
