I feel awful but I could not pay to send this package.

I promised a mylot friend some cookies. I went to the store and got two more boxes. I had them package in this box. I get to the post office and she said $18 and change was the cheapest I could go. I wanted it there sooner, though. But I could not pay even that to send this to her. I felt it was over priced. I will find a single box and see what they charge to send just one. I hate not being able to feel good about that fee. I am so glad I went instead of my aide because she might have shipped it. The pot office has done me wrong today. You can't even imagine how light that box is. I feel so bad as I promised the cookies.

Did you package the box, or did the post office? Also, I've found that the smaller the box, the less the shipping charge. Even a large, lightweight box will cost you more than a smaller, heavier one.

I packaged it myself with a light box. I will try to do it over.

@sharon6345 Also, was there something particularly special about these cookies? Good sale, nostalgia, etc? The coconut and ginger ones sound good.

Posting packages can be unexpectedly expensive. I hope you will find an alternative and send them.

@Tina30219 I don't think that will work being that the cookies cost me $1.25 I won't feel comfortable paying a high price for the shipping. I have one packed for monday.

Don't feel badly if you can't send them. I wonder if sending them separately isn't going to end up being the same amount anyway. Just forget it if it too much. It was nice of you to think of me and we will just leave it at that.

It is expensive to mail packages anymore. That is the biggest cost on ebay to mail what you just sold.

The postage probably was more than all of the cookies. I don't blame you in the least!!
