I've never tried this before so we'll see how it goes.

Up to 5 pounds of books(including packaging) for 1 credit.

I'm finishing up a decluttering session within the next week and will be making multiple trips to the Salvation Army to donate, my trunk is already full and ready to go later today.  Take advantage of my mood to reduce material items.  :-)

Order one book from my shelf then PM me other titles you would like and I'll fill up the package until the weight reaches the 5 pound limit.

Packages filled on first come first serve basis based on time date stamp on PM.

173 books on shelf (64 children only 2 romance)

For example, I just weighed 15 Animorphs books and with packaging they would be under the 5 pound limit.

Offer good until I remove the post. 

Have a great day!

All books to this point have been collected and removed from my shelf.  Thanks so much for the orders!  I'll be going to the post office later today.

The last order was 2 credits for 33 books!

I'm determined in the new year to keep my shelf 100 books or less.  Keep the orders coming.  :-)
