Being a Military Family is hard, you move away often and leave your friends & Family behind.  One of the easiest ways to stay in contact is by phone or e-mail, even Facebook and Twitter for some of us right? 
Do you want to know what I have found to be the best way to keep in touch with the world?  Sending care packages πŸ˜‰  Not only to the US Soldier’s I send cookies too every month, but to my friends and Family that I have left behind.  Personally I LOVE receiving packages and I LOVE seeing the excitement on the kid’s faces when they see a package has arrived.  So I do what I can, to do the same for others.  For ALL of my shipping needs I go to The UPS Store.  Shouldn’t everyone?

I love and support our Military as much as I can, and though sometimes it means only baking cookies and shipping baby wipes, I send what I can.  Regardless on what I am shipping for our Troops, I only trust one store to help me pack and ship my treasures, it’s the The UPS Store.  Through years of using the UPS shipping services, I have grown to trust the company with all of my needs.  As much as I have used The UPS shipping services, I hadn’t realized that there was an entire world of services in their stores.  So now, I go to The UPS Store about once a week, I can ship my packages, make copies, fax papers and all while the friendly employees pack my things for me.  It’s a love/love relationship πŸ˜‰ This picture is all the thanks I need for my baking πŸ˜‰

Some of the services offered at The UPS Store:

Packaging,  Shipping, Printing Services, Mailbox & Postal services, Moving Supplies, Additional products and Services, Corporate Retail Solutions. 
It’s amazing, it’s an entire world of help!!!  We are definitely going to The UPS Store for help with our moving πŸ˜‰
