WHEW! Cannot afford to ship more packages....

Well, what a rude awakening I received today.  I finally got my package completed to ship to Nikki, my blog candy winner, and went to the post office to ship it, and it was over $20 for a little over 3 pounds!!  Talk about shock!!  Last time I shipped one of these bigger boxes it was less than $10.  and I think it weighed more.   I knew this would be a little more in costs because it had two punches in it, plus several stamps, and paper - which does get heavy.

But If I give more candy away, it's gonna have to be gift certificates I guess.  I simply cannot afford shipping costs like that, on top of what the items themselves cost.  I've not worked for the past nearly 3 years, and have not qualified for disability yet, so this is just too expensive.

This truly makes me much more appreciative (I've always been really appreciative because it's allowed me to do this hobby!) of the blog candies that I win. I really do thank you each and every one for absorbing all those extra costs!

WOW!
I can imagine how you feel... that´s the main reason I can´t do candies, from where I live, to ship a small package (200-300 gs - 1/2 pound) it´s about $30 to anywhere in the world, so for me, it´s impossible :(
Warm hugs,
Ardilla

Terri, it is ridiculous that the costs have shot up so much. It cost me $48 to ship my last candy. Sad...
