    I'm currently in line at the PO to send an item to jolly olde England... I'm reminded why I don't sell international!

    Why not just print the label online and drop it in the box.....or better yet, have the carrier pick it up?

    Did this for the first time ever today. Gloriously amazing. As I continue to study my brains out I thought every moment saved counts.

    I still feel incredibly guilty about it though. My post office is probably 1/2 mile away as the crow flies and 1.5 miles away driving. Carrier was awesome and nice about it though. Only worry I have about it is leaving stuff on the front of the house or something (we don't have all of the nice folks most of you have).

    I don't have the outbox capacity. I live in a condo and have a tiny mailbox. Going to the PO gives me an excuse to be near several thrift stores too...

    I shipped 8 packages today.

    I personally like watching them scan each item so I know its in the system. If they lose it from there, oh well, at least I know I did my best.

    Mines closer....I don't feel the least but guilty. I spent about $17K on postage last year....so I earned the perk.
    If you have them all printed ahead of time, you can just skip the line and drop them on the counter....or in the package bin if they have one.
    Well, there is that. I have gotten to know my carrier quite well, and she does a pretty good job scanning them. Only a few I have noticed were missed, and they were scanned before they left town on the truck.

    Agreed. I'm less concerned with things I ship though, but I will always ask for a receipt when using prepaid labels to return stuff.

    Why does Poland vs. England bother you?
