I discovered a new technology this week that I feel really makes me life so much easier. I believe it’s been around for a few years, but it was the first time that I paid and printed my own packing labels at home without the need for the post office. After spending so many quality hours with my local postal worker last fall during the wedding-prep phase, I am happy to no longer need their time or service. I am self-sufficient!
I logged onto www.usps.com and immediately there is a place to create your own shipping labels. I entered the weight and within a few clicks, I was checked out and taping my label to my box. Fortunately, I have a fantastic kitchen scale at home too that helps me figure out an accurate weight.
I love when these old rituals, such as visiting the post office, enter the 21st century. There is a way to make our lives easier and technology does that. During my 15+ year tenure in the software industry, I was always proud to be able to bring products to people that helped streamlined their lives and their businesses. I am now so glad to be a customer of this advancement and am very supportive of the USPS in making these strides.
