I take advantage of the post office!
I admit it. The U.S. Post Office has a service that I take advantage of 2 to 3 times a week, and it really helps my business. If you ship at least 1 package by Priority Mail, you qualify for free pickup. Many days I have lots of smaller orders but no Priority Mail orders. On those days, especially if I’m not planning to run errands, I will pay a little bit extra to upgrade a large order from First Class Mail to Priority Mail in order to qualify for free pickup. It’s an easy way for me to ensure I’m able to mail orders every day for less money than the gas it would take to drive to the post office. So if you place a large order, don’t be surprised if you get it faster than you expected in a Priority Mail padded envelope. It’s a little something special from me and the post office.
