Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Yes, 24 is the limit.

If so, which country? Yeah, only the US, because of the flat rate boxes.  Sorry!

Hey guys, I don't know if anyone else does this, but if you go to the USPS website, you can order a bundle of flat rate boxes, and the post office will deliver them to your house for free.  I think it took less than a week for mine to show up.

When I ordered some last month it was only 10 in a bundle, do they have different sizes of bundles?  Make sure you check before ordering a bunch!

Ok, 8 people so far, and I should have everybody set up and whatnot!  This is my first organizing experience, so PLEASE, if there is a problem, tell me about it so I can fix it!  I keep feeling like I'm forgetting something.

  • tell 'em they're in the swap
  • give 'em feedback
  • get their info into the spreadsheet
  • start figuring out who you're gonna pair with who
  • re-figure out who you're gonna pair with who
  • take 2 advil, rinse and repeat
