Tips and Tricks -Happy Friday!

Once upon a time, I could mail an order just like this one....

with a 64 cent stamp.  That's the whole reason I offer free shipping. Now it costs $2.32.  Over the past couple of weeks, I have been to the post office several times.  I have learned a few things and thought I would share with you....
The envelope I have been using, not much smaller than a letter envelope, is no longer acceptable at the post office. It is too small.  
The metal tab on this envelope makes it non-machinable and...
 is an extra charge of 21 cents.  If it is a parcel package then there might not be an extra charge.  
But if ...
you put a piece of tape over it then there is no charge.  

Lending a helping hand to keep up with the USPS...

Enjoy!
