If there's a way to save a few bucks on everyday expenses, like sending packages and letters, why not take advantage of it? Web-based shipping platforms like PirateShip.com promise affordability, but they also cut down on wait times and long lines — all the things that make stopping by your local United States Postal Service (USPS) office such a drag. So, the question remains: Is this kind of shipping service right for you?
