Another Time Saver Tip: Online Shipping

As I sit here and print out labels for my Jafra shipments, I just thought I'd let you in on this online shipping from the US post office. Now, many of you smart people out there already know about this service but you'd be surprised by how many people DON'T know that it's available.
You can save up to 14% off postage by doing it online. Do you have a certified letter to mail out? Well send it Priority Mail instead. Many times it's cheaper and they come pick it up right to your home!
Here's what you need to get started:
You need to go to and sign up for an account. It's free and you don't have to have a business to do this. You can create an address book to use again and again. Order their free Priority Mail shipping package.
Go and get a digital postal scale. I bought mine years ago when I used but you can get one cheap at like this one
Start keeping boxes in different sizes and shapes to use for Christmas shipments in the future!!
For me it's a real time saver, because I can print out all my labels in one batch and then request carrier pickup the next day right from my front porch {now don't go coming over to my front porch to steal my merchandise!! I have cameras people, you'll be caught ;)}

Anyways, I can do all my shipping right from my desk at home while all the kiddos are asleep. No long lines at the post office, no hauling boxes of stuff in the rain, total convenience. Note: You don't need special labels. You can print them on regular printer paper and just tape them to your boxes. I do recommend you use clear packing tape and not Scotch Tape!
I have compared them to UPS and most of the time the post office is cheaper. I do use UPS sometimes but it's on the rare occasion that I have an auction item to ship put and I do it thru my PayPal account where I get a discount {see a trend here: DISCOUNT}
So get started today and save time and hassles tomorrow.
