Yes, folks. It’s time for everybody’s favorite post: Stupid Shipping Gang! In this episode, Amazon demonstrates how to package a tiny microfiber cloth efficiently.

I wanted to add another example to your files of stupid shipping. I just got the microfiber clothes I ordered for cleaning my SLR’s lenses. I thought it was kind of silly they used a big box and put all the cushioning on top (none below of course). But even when I took it all out I couldn’t find the clothes, which had slid under on of the cardboard flaps. I’m pretty sure that alone is proof that a standard, letter sized envelope would have more than sufficed.

Thanks for letting me share.
