Mailing gifts for family and friends can be quite expensive nowadays. I still cannot believe that we spent more than thirty hundred bucks just on gifts and shipping alone! It is because we didn't think of how much the gifts would weight when we bought them. Thus, when it was time to mail them, we were surprise, but we don't have any but to mail them since it wouldn't get there just in time for Christmas had we exchange them or shop again for lighter gifts. Oh well, we learned our lessons well last year. Now, I plan on buying calendar fosters where I can place it inside the mailing tubes. It would be a useful customized gifts that everyone would enjoy and use for the rest of the year, not to mention less expensive and cheaper mailing price. Sounds like a good plan for me. What do you think?
