    I was wondering if there would be any interest in swapping canned goods. If so I would like to start a swap for them.

    Wouldn't the shipping costs be expensive?

    The large priority mail flat rate box has a max weight of 20 lbs...and it is about $15.

    I would figure it would be for 1 jar and you could sign up as many times as you wanted. It is pretty much the same cost as shipping eggs if you use the flat rate boxes. You could ship with any shipping company whichever is cheaper. Ups, Usps, Fed ex/
