USPS District Manager Ken McArthur says the best advice he can give busy customers this time of year is to ship from home for the holidays. "Customers can save up to 11 percent off Post Office retail prices by mailing online at, and they can also request a free package pickup," said McArthur "Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes make shipping easy - 'if it fits it ships for one low price" and the boxes are free. It not only saves you money, but time and gas as well" Many Post Offices now offer greeting cards and gift cards - the single most requested holiday gift. Tips for Holiday Mailing and Shipping Confirm addresses. Print addresses clearly and be sure to include all address elements -- apartment numbers, suite numbers and directional information for streets. For example: 123 S Main St. or 12456 Elm St. N. Include both "to" and "from" information on packages -- and only on one side. Never guess a ZIP Code. Visit usps. corn to find all ZIP codes. Choose the Right Box. Select a box that is strong g dates enough to protect " the contents. Leave space for . cushioning inside. Do not reuse mailing boxes -- they weaken in the shipping process. Customers can purchase ReadyPost boxes at a local Post Office or at the Postal Store on Express Mail and Priority Mail boxes, envelopes and tubes are free. Pack Delicately. Cushion contents with shredded or rolled newspaper, bubble wrap or foam peanuts. Plain air-popped popcorn also is good for cushioning it's inexpensive and environmentally friendly. Pack contents tightly to avoid shifting during, transit. /(lways use tape that is designed for shipping, such as pressure-sensitive tape, nylon-reinforced craft paper tape or glass-reinforced pressure-sensitive tape. Do not use wrapping paper, string, masking tape, duct tape or cellophane tape. TUESDAY Beef Stew, Fruit Salad, Bread, Cheese Cake Tacos / Lettuce, Tomato, Refried Beans.
