Anyone have any idea how much it costs to mail one of the Season's Best Cookbooks? I'm so tired of running to the post office to have everything weighed. I thought someone might know. Thanks!

I've always wanted to try stamps.com. How much was the monthly fee? I think it'll likely be worth it! I swear I go at least every other day and I've got the crabby toddlers with me (almost 4 and 1), although I try to go when the older one is in preschool. I got a free trial thing in the mail a LONG time ago, but never followed through on it. I'd love to know more about the monthly fee. And what do you do, just put it in your own mailbox to send it? The only other bummer is our mail seems to come so late now! It used to be by 10 am, but now it's more like 3 pm.GeorgiaPeach said:I know some consultants that swear by www.stamps.com. I tried it for a while and received a VERY nice postal scale free during the trial period. If you are making alot of trips to the post office, using stamps.com can pay for itself. (There is a monthly fee). The site has alot of nice features. I stopped using it because trips to the PO aren't a big deal for me. (My "crabbly toddlers" are now 10 and 15!) I just popped over to the website....they are currently offering free postage, free digital scale, free supply kit, and a 4 week trial. Might be worth a try.

Oh I like this!! That's exactly what I need. Do you print it on paper and tape it on or do you have to use special labels? Does the regular mail carrier pick it up? I'm assuming it's not extra to do it this way, right? How quickly do they come pick it up? THat's the only reason I keep going to the PO because once i have a packet ready, I can just go over there.DebbieJ said:Yep, the Priority Mail flat rate envelope is my friend. I send all my host packets that way when I have to mail them. Go to the PO and take a bunch of envelopes home. Then when you have to mail out a packet, you can go to www.usps.gov and use click-n-ship to print a label and postage! Then schedule a carrier pick up and you don't even have to leave the house!
