Let me know when you send a package that way I can start checking at the post office. I have been told it takes about two weeks if you send by USPS flat rate.
Here are some tips about sending packages from another volunteer:
If you are going to send a package, the USPS flat-rate boxes are the best way to go!
When customs asks for a list of items and a price tag, your best bet
is to totally lie list something like, “paper, marker, pens, various supplies for United States Peace Corps volunteer” or something similarly official-sounding.
Just on a side note – be EXTREMELY careful when sending liquids, especially if there are electronic items in the package as well.
