One thing I learned as a lowly fashion intern in NYC was how to package goods safely and mail them.
Ordinary Paper Bag
Add a book:
And 5 minutes later, you have a neatly wrapped package:
I should totally work for UPS
Of course after I wrapped the book up once, I put it it in a ziplock bag and wrapped it again so that even if it gets wet, the book should be unharmed .
What are your packaging tips? I love using paper bags because they are strong, cheap, and abundant.
