There are a few reasonable options when you are looking to mail a package somewhere else in the country: USPS, UPS, or FedEx.
I have seen and heard about DHL for many years and their unique way of shipping items. Basically, they pick up the item and are supposed to deliver it to a USPS Hub near you so… well it should be faster right? My guess is it’s much cheaper than using USPS itself here is why:

If they are simply going to pick up the item and bring it to the post office, why not just use the USPS?

It did a fine job at the “other tasks” but seemed to take a little long for… Continue reading
After thinking about it for a few days, I decided that I am going to stop posting for a few weeks or a few months to give me time to reinvent whatever I had planned on to happen here… Continue reading | 2 Comments
