    That's an excellent system and thanks for the step-by-step photos. Given the value of what we ship, in money or in growing effort, the small extra cost/effort to do it right is worth it. What I'll add is that harsh weather requires better insulation and that a 2nd layer of insulation (plus paying attention to weather forecasts at the receiving end) can work wonders, both in cold weather and in hot, sunny weather.

    Clever. I'm kinda too cheap for even this method, but I see how this is safer.
    Anyone in your household take any prescriptions? I like to re-use those containers for things like this or holding loose items like change. Fun fact: a large pill container holds 15 dollars in quarters perfectly. :P

    @ Mr. Truncata: Those round, celled containers were found around the house. Actually, my mother orders Stampin' Up () supplies every now and then, and I got away with a few of them. They used to contain grommets, brads, etc.

    @ Rattler: Yep, photo canisters are very good! I just can't find them anymore - we've been using digital cameras for the past few years...But any rigid plastic container works well.

    @ Bruce: Excellent pointers!

    @ Est: Lol!
