|My packages awaiting pickup.|
|If I had to go to the USPS 365 days a year.|
|My vintage mailbox, an old door knob as the pull handle.|
|Debbie my exceptional mail carrier with my packages.|

Because I recycle so many boxes, I asked my carrier what would happen if I mailed a package First Class but the box had a Priority Mail sticker left on it. She said the postal carrier would have to collect the extra postage on the other end! So if you are recycling boxes, make sure you remove all the old stickers!
My biggest dilemma was how to ship golf clubs. One day when browsing through the FREE USPS mailing boxes. I stumbled upon a FREE box that holds such a thing! EUREKA! Some items are what they classify as flat rate which means there is a set mailing price regardless of the package weight (if it fits it ships for that flat price), others are just priority boxes and you will be charged a varying priority rate based on the weight.
|Don't be a chicken - just ask!|
Don't be afraid to talk to your mail carrier. It can be a game changer and make your life so much easier!
