Not sub-postal do it that way

I made me a list, checked it twice. And again. And again. If the shipping all goes smoothly the Christmas shopping looks just about finished, and I know how fortunate we are that we can do that this year.

One company doesn’t gift wrap and I wasn’t going to send four grandkids a jumble of unlabeled toys to let them duke it out over early, so I’m having the order sent here so I can wrap and reroute. That works if they ship promptly. They’re not Amazon and I’ve never dealt with them before, I don’t know. It’s too late now to say I should have paid individual shipping on each rather than accepting free shipping for the lot and a little work for me.

But then, wrapped up for Christmas for the kids is just so much better. So much more, this is from us, rather than, look what we paid for.

I wonder if the post office lines will be shorter this year?

The thought hits me: like how they said the voting lines were going to be?

I wish you the best of luck! Do you use the USPS online Click-n-Ship? Actually can save a bit $, plus you print the shipping label so then you just tape it to your package. Then you can just give the packages to your mail carrier. Or if you take them into the PO, you can usually skip the line and just leave the packages on the designated counter. My husband took in 2 on Monday and the pile on the counter was 3 feet tall! Luckily he could reach to add mine to the top. 🙂

I too have been wondering how the PO is really doing now. I know that in recent months, it’s much more common for packages to be delayed, but I am lucky in that it’s not been anything that’s time-sensitive (other than wanting my yarn order to show up already!).

My small town PO is always great. But I also bribe my kids to wrap their children’s presents!
