BLOCKS TO GINNY AND RHO IN THE MAIL
I mailed my blocks today. I was expecting to mail them first class, but because we are requiring delivery confirmation on the packages, my packages (envelopes) were too small to go First Class with Delivery Confirmation. The only way I could get Delivery Confirmation (which only costs 80 cents) was to either make the envelopes 3/4″ thick, so it would be a First Class package, or to go priority mail, which was over $5 each envelope. I did the latter because I didn’t want to repackage everything, but that seems crazy to pay over $10 to send out 9 blocks (two addresses).
Since this was my first time to mail these out, I’m just wondering how everyone else does this. Do you really pay over $10/month postage to join the lotto? There must be an cheaper way, but according to my post office there isn’t if I need the Delivery Confirmation. They said next time include something 3/4″ thick so that it can go as a First Class package.
I’d appreciate any advice, as I have 9 blocks done for Jan. already.
