I’m not sure if it’s helpful to anyone else, but this is what I came up with.
Today I shipped out a box of ends and pieces of cutoffs to a fellow LJ.
The weight was around 30 lbs and if I had shipped it like I normally do in a heavy duty box the cost would have been @$50 shipping.
Instead, lately I’ve been using flat rate boxes. The one I used is called a ””Priority Mail Board Game Large Flat Rate Box””:https://store.usps.com/store/browse/productDetailSingleSku.jsp?categoryNav=false&navAction=jump&navCount=2&productId=PGBFRB&categoryId=subcatMSS_FlatRate
Inside Dimensions: 23 11/16” x 11 3/4” x 3”
Cost for Priority Mail Shipping was $15.45…... a big savings over $50!
I also stuffed it a bit fuller so it was actually about 24×12x3 1/8.
If you have items to ship and look for a cost effective way to ship them, check out the Flat rate offerings from the USPS.
