Is Styleforum up on your computer when you do this? Always seems to slow me down by distraction.
My items are all shipped the same based on what it is.
Ties - Rolled in a plastic "thank you" bag, inside a 6x3x3 box from ULINE
Shoes and Thick Coats - Sealed in this ULINE bag, wrapped in 5 sheets of this bubble wrap, and packed in this 13x10x4 ULINE box
Sport Coats and Summer Weight Suits - Sealed in this ULINE bag, shipped in Flat Rate Regional Box A2
Overcoats or two pairs of shoes- Sealed in this ULINE Bag, shipped in this 14x10x6 ULINE box
I use these labels, (don't cut that shit out, that's crazy talk)
I use some of the best tape available, no point in photoing, describing and packaging something carefully for an empty box to arrive at the buyers house.
Gather all items that sold first.
Ship similar items at the same time. Do all ties, then do all shoes, etc.
Streamline / ergonomify your work area. I can sit in one spot and reach all shipping supplies, as well as my laptop and printer.
