    For those of you who have ordered shipping supplies from the Post Office how long did it take to get them? Now that I am out in the country I need to order supplies as my little PO doesn't carry all the size boxes I need. I ordered them online on 8/28 and still don't have them. It says 7 to 10 days. I received an email saying the supplies were shipped but that was 3 weeks ago.

    I asked my mail carrier today and he said he hasn't seen them. I really need the boxes and I hate to reorder in case they do show up.

    UPDATE: The supplies showed up today ( after I reordered of course ) They were shipped from IN on Sept 1st

    I have never waited more than a week, I would go ahead and can always send them back or give them to your little PO [​IMG]

    I would reorder. It is better to have too many, than to run out when you need them. Mine only take about a week..usually faster than that.

    Thanks for the fast replies. It really did seem like too long to get them. I wonder where they are?
    It's bad when the PO ships stuff and it doesn't arrive. [​IMG]

    I'll go ahead and reorder now. I used my last box today!
