I think I am pretty good about readily admitting that I am making this up as I go along. A big part of it is relying on the good ideas of others.
One good one, for the very adventerous, is to order the flat rate boxes online. USPS will delivery them to you, saving the time of going to get them and the funny feeling of walking out of the post office with arms full of empty boxes.
So tell me, Good Idea Fairies — what other good ideas do you have?
