This post is for my Thirty-One sisters! One of our most frequently asked questions is… “How in the world can I mail a Large Utility Tote?” I mail a lot of products out to my customers that aren’t local, and just today had to make out several Large and Medium Utility Totes (rest in peace, Medium Utility Totes, until we meet again!) There’s always been three options available to mail Large Utility Toes
- Use a Large Flat Rate box – approximate cost: $17+ (yuck!)
- Use a Thirty-One box that our orders arrived in. These are usually TOO big and raise the cost of shipping because of their size. approximately: $8-$15
- Use a Thirty-One Pink Bag – approximately $5-$6, but risk having the tote get bent during shipping (boo!)
Prepare to have your minds blown, ladies! The first thing you need to do is go to your local post office and grab some Priority Mail boxes. I use the ones that are 11.5″ x 2.375″ x 13.125″. They’re FREE! You can also order them from USPS and have them delivered to you for FREE here: USPS. Then slip your Large Utility Tote into the box, leaving the ends open. This will prevent any possible bending from happening during shipping! Whoo Hoo! Now you can put the Large Utility Tote that you have inside the box INSIDE a Pink Bag! Tape your bag closed… Add your shipping label… Check out how great the front looks. Your customers are going to LOVE getting this package in the mail! I shipped several of these today for $5-$6! Shipped Priority of course (since a Priority box was used). Not too shabby!!!
