Did you know... that you should never throw out packaging for at least a few days?

I know it is an extra step, but you should NEVER throw out any packaging from anywhere (not just unless you are certain that you have removed everything that was in the package, or unless you have gone through all of the packaging piece by piece. You can always just roll the brown paper up and put it back in the tube and put any cardboard back in the box or flat package.

WHY do I say this? Because every few months we have someone who contacts us a few days (or even weeks or months) after they received an order and they say, "How come I never got X item?" The answer is almost always that the item in question was in that last order, and that they not only "missed" seeing it when they opened the package or tube, but they also were in a hurry to throw away the packaging, and they also did not think to look at the email we sent with an "electronic" invoice of what was in that package.

Of course, this partly happens because of our very generous combining policy, where we let customers wait 3 weeks in the U.S. or 6 weeks outside the U.S. to have their orders shipped together, and also because we pack so well, with lots of cardboard, brown paper, and plastic, so there are more places for items to "hide".

But PLEASE be super careful to not throw out an item along with the "worthless" packaging! Please take an extra few moments or minutes to look carefully through every bit of the packaging material (and the same goes for any other company you order from).
