I’m embarrassed to say how long it took me to start buying my supplies at more wholesale prices…and now I will NEVER buy retail chain shipping supplies again. I really wasted a lot of my profit on those items.
The next best thing to finding free shipping supplies, is to find a great shipping products supplier. The one I use is Packitright.com. They have great prices, a user-friendly website, and nice people to work with. I keep their info on the top of my page if you ever need to get to it.
So…while you are looking over your expenses on your tax forms..consider finding cheaper alternatives to the supplies you have been using. It’s much more fun to use that money to buy “groovy stuff” than supplies.
