I used to buy items from Staples on sale and was typically $1 or less  
off from 'free shipping' threshold, so I'd add a box of paper clips to  
get free shipping. So I'd get my item in it's original bow with a  
shipping label, and in a 12"x12"x18" box from a different warehouse  
was my 89 cent box of paper clips. It cost Staples HUGE to send that  
89 cent item...
