USPS Price Increase For The Holidays Has Begun

October 04, 2021

New Price Increase

Hold onto your hats ladies and gentlemen! I knew this price increase was coming but I didn't realize how devastating it would be until a couple minutes ago when I printed a label that normally cost around $7 and some change is now $9 and change! 

I had thought that my pricing was safe and I wouldn't have to raise prices but I was wrong! Here are the increases that are happening posted from the usps web site 

Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express, Parcel Select Ground and USPS Retail Ground:

  • $0.75 increase for PM and PME Flat Rate Boxes and Envelopes.
  • $0.25 increase for Zones 1-4, 0-10 lbs.
  • $0.75 increase for Zones 5-9, 0-10 lbs.
  • $1.50 increase for Zones 1-4, 11-20 lbs.
  • $3.00 increase for Zones 5-9, 11-20lbs.
  • $2.50 increase for Zones 1-4, 21-70 lbs.
  • $5.00 increase for Zones 5-9, 21-70 lbs.

When I look at this chart it doesn't appear to be too bad but when it translates to actual shipping rates it looks a lot worse and Im not sure why!

I will monitor this for the next couple days and update shipping prices as needed. I apologize for not having more foresight on this. I really didn't think it would be so bad but it seems that EVERYTHING is going up in a big way including gas and groceries!

We have been lucky to not hit any supply issues so far but I suspect that will happen at some point as many people are experiencing this too!

Making brown sugar is easy, more healthy and believe it or not, making it at home it lasts longer! I used to have to run to the store and buy brown sugar when I decided I wanted to make something that required it. I would put the remaining brown sugar in a jar with a sealed lid and when I would go to get it, it would be a solid rock! Really annoying because then I was off to the store to buy more brown sugar!
