Gasoline is down to $1.69 per gallon of regular. Why did it go up to $4+??? We can only speculate.
Here is another money saver hint.
Use plastic grocery bags for packing merchandise to mail.
Recently my camera quit working. I called the 800 customer service number. The agent told me to ship it back for repair.
I did not have bubble wrap so I took 20+ plastic bags, put the camera in bag one, continuing into each bag before putting the item into a sturdy cardboard box.
My fine camera arrived and was returned without any problems.
