Help Sign How should I ship

I have a friend in danger of losing her house so I'm trying to show her how I shop and help her to use coupons...however..I'd like to send her a ton of my stockpile items so she can see what I've been able to get for free or close to it..but also to help her so she doesn't have to buy some necessities right away..but what is the best way to ship these to her.

I have some meds, food, toys, clothes, cleaning etc.
Should I break it up into smaller packages, keep it as 1 big package..send via usps, ups, fedex??? HELP PLEASE!!!
TIA for all the tips

You could put the heaviest items in USPS flat rate boxes. Check FedEx rates; my sister says they're best, at least for her purposes.

If you're sending a lot (more than will fit into a 12" x 12" x 5 1/2" box), fedex ground is sometimes cheaper than USPS.

I looked into sending my mom 4 large boxes, about 20"x20"x20" each, through fedex and it was going to be over $100 and she lives on the other side of the state. The same boxes sent parcel post through USPS were $120. I decided to meet her half-way instead of shipping it, and she'll get a car full instead. That might not be an option for you though.

thanks

That's sweet of you too!! It's taken me a while to figure this whole thing out so I figure I should share, show her what's possible because she still insists that it's cheaper to buy generics..but she had no idea her stores doubled up to .99 (wish mine did) and that their b1g1free she could use 2 coupons with plus the stores coupons...slowly I'm hoping to help her cut things out..oh yea her kmart does double coupons too..again wish mine did!! So hopefully this will work. I just hope the shipping is worth it.

Wow where does she live, I want to move there.
For heavy stuff, I agree get a flat rate box. Then mail the light stuff separately.
