Boxes

Did you think those Priority and Express mail boxes that the post office provides were "free"? Well, so did I, til I found out that I could save money by providing my own box. So I saved $1.50 yesterday, mailing the grandkids' forgotten items back to Boston. Not a big deal, but it's another way to recycle, and it could add up if you do a lot of package sending.

I haven't been in a post office in years. Did you know that on the post office's website you can print off your own labels and, using your own boxes, have your regular mail carrier pick up the package while never having to leave your home?

In a different vein, it's to know we aren't the only ones forgetting items at our various destinations.

I don't get it. Some of the boxes are free although they have some that aren't. At least that has been my experience. But if you get a "free" priority mail box you have to send the pkge priority and sometimes that's more expensive than parcel post.
