I just paid for postage online and printed my own shipping label. No long lines at the post office, super easy, more convenient, and CHEAPER! I can drop the package off with the mailman, or drive it to the post office and drop it in the drop box. The web address is http://www.usps.com/ . It does help that I have a small postal scale at home already, but there are also fixed rate priority mail boxes and envelopes that have a high a weight limit. The online rates are discounted rates. It does cost less to ship by doing it online than it does to take your packages into the post office. I don't know about you, but I am sure happy to NOT have to wait in long holiday lines at the post office, AND pay less for shipping!
