Tricia - did it say why?

Comment by Tricia51 8 hours ago

I was reading a list of what to mail & it did say not to send pork or pork by products.

Cindy - that is funny that they licked out the cheese & chocolate!  I can just picture them all with their heads stuck in the box lol!  Poor guys!

Another tip I was given is to put things in separate ziplock bags within the box (things that might spill/melt/give off unusual smells).  Also line your box with a trash bag - then put all your items inside the trash bag.  That way if a box near your box spills anything yours hopefully won't get wet.

I also put a small lint roller on the list & travel size Febreeze.

Cindy - yes the USPS click & ship is definitely the way to go! (I just need to figure out my custom form online & I'll be good to go lol!) You can even order the boxes online & they will send them directly to you (including the form and packing tape).

Here's the link again in case anyone still needs it.  Scroll down the page & you'll see the tab to order.

My grocery store had the Muscle Milk on sale so I bought some packs of that to send too.  Those will be for "special" times.  Luckily my son bought all his protein powder himself so I don't have to do any of that lol!

A year or so ago we got him one of those "As seen on TV - Be Active for Back Pain" braces (you wear it below your knee).  One of the guys here at my work had back surgery & he used it - he said it helped.  My son used it & said it worked too - they just can't wear it for too many hours at a time - it specifies on the label.  My son is tall - 6'4" so he ends up with a sore back a lot.....

Wonderful ideas thanks! My hubs says usps priority Mail boxes are easy and fast to send. There is afp address designated on one of the flaps. Boxes come in s, m, and lg are pre insured to 50.00. You can go to print your own flat rate label and pay ahead of time so no line standing at PO! just drop off hope this helps someone

Awesome ideas B'sNukeMom! Thanks! Lora is good my hubby gave me the BellLee bit when we were in college. He has been away from home for 4 years now so I really don't know some of his tastes (horrible mom that I am). I dont think he is much of a sweet eater but I do know he likes trail mix stuff and protein powder drinks.The back pads are son does get a sore back. I'll have to look into that!
