Well, I've authorised my parcels for shipment, but will never use HSG again - $291.77 for postage is just a bit much for me!
Maybe we should have a contest to see who has been charged the most shipping, at least that way I'll feel like I've achieved something (other than probably ending up paying more than I would have done here for the same items
I'm trying to laugh it off and think of it as an education in volumetric weight.
BTW the reason why the shipping was so much was because I put in an order with Amazon.com and it ended up coming from 4 different sellers, plus the order from Amazon itself was split into three separate boxes. That's a lot of empty space in 6 individual boxes.
