boxresizer I originally bought this box resizer in 2013 and it is still one of the best buys I have made for my business.  When determining the shipping cost of an item their are 2 variables in your control, how much it weighs and how big the box is.  The bigger either of these numbers are the more it will cost you to ship the item.  So, it is in your best interest to ship items the lightest way possible and in the smallest possible box.  This box resizer is essential in meeting both of those goals.  If you ship an item in a box that is way to big you waste money on having to add extra padding and this padding adds weight to your shipment.  By cutting the box down to the right size you won’t have to use nearly the same amount of padding which reduces costs and weight, especially since you are cutting out some of the cardboard.

This is a simple tool that is very easy to use.  Below is a video of me back around the time that I first bought this tool.  In the video I demonstrate how to use it so take a look!
