It’s time for a new puzzle post! This isn’t a heavy release time of year, but there are some cool new puzzles to check out regardless. For your Edification – A Tip on Saving Shipping Costs: I used to never order a single puzzle because the shipping cost for just one can be nearly as much as the puzzle itself! Yet I’m not always ready to spend $75 to get free shipping either. That’s why I really enjoy the Puzzle Warehouse’s “Puzzle of theRead more
