I was on the USPS website earlier & it seems there's a way cheaper way to ship eggs, just thought I'd share the info & see if anyone else noticed this. Most people ship using the flat rate priority shipping boxes, large being $14. Well if you use a box that's not a flat rate one to send priority, it's literatly half the price! Even boxes over 12 inches, it's all about the weight, not size so this would be a better way to go with eggs since you want more space & they don't weigh very much. The price to ship a box priority mail that is for example 20x20x10 that weighs 3.1 pounds, is only $6.80 but a 12x12x5.5 flat rate large box is $14 (almost $15)! You could send so many more eggs for so much less money.
