Just wondering...

I'm not sure if this is "diaper chatter" exactly, but I have a question. I'm new here, and I've sold a couple of things on FSOT, but I seem to be spending a lot on shipping...more than I expected anyway. I was just wondering how y'all pay for shipping items and still have some left for new fluff! Are my expectations just too high? TIA

Re: Just wondering...

Ship in manila envelopes or polymailers, NOT the expensive bubble mailers from Wal-Mart. Ship First Class, and print shipping through Paypal if at all possible, because DC is only $0.18 through them, versus $0.75 at the post office.

Re: Just wondering...

I got a pkg of white envelopes, the size of the manilla ones at walmart, 15 for less than $2. If you have something bigger than that, use a brown paper grocery sack, just make sure you tape it up real good. I wrap the stuff in a plastic bag first if I do that, to make sure if the paper does tear, nothing happens to the fluff.

but yes, postage rates are horrible. I look at it as I'm lucky to have a place to sell it at all. Ebay won't allow used dipes anymore.

Actually, that's how I found DS. I spent hours posting a bunch of FBs on Ebay unawares of their new policy. They kicked them all back, of course. Thanks for the tips!
