    Grumpy So... small.

    Advertisements
    Ok, so this is just sort of a pointless thread.
    But my god... when everyone said the large flat rate boxes were small.... I didn't realize just how small until I started trying to put everything I had bought in there.
    Definitely having to save some stuff for next time.

    They seem smaller to me this deployment, and the price has gone up. I sent off 3 boxes last week and it was rather expensive. We said I wouldn't send so many this time around but that hasn't happened yet, haha.

    I was surprised that I could fit everything in there, but it still seemed like a small-ish box. Wish it was a little bit bigger but that just means more packages to send his way

    I can never just send one box. I usually send 2 at a time because one is full of all the junk DH asked for and the other is full of junk I wanted to send him

    They are small! You just have to get creative. Take things out of their packaging, that helps a lot!

    Take what you can out of packages. You can cram a lot more into the box that way.

    I definitely thought the "large" looked like a "small" in my interpretation I got used to it though and DH never wanted much so it worked out.

    Yeah, I managed to still get quite a bit into the box, but I was just amazed at how small it really is. DB's mom is sending him packages more often than I'll be able to anyway, so it probably won't be too much of a problem if he really needs anything!
