    Weighing gear / good scale recommendation

    Never been anywhere close to a light weight guy, but the older I get it is making a lot more sense. Is there anything special to look out for when purchasing?

    Weighing gear / good scale recommendation

    The main thing is if it shows you weight in ounces & grams. depending on how accurate you want to be, you might want one that also shows in tenths and hundredths of ounces/grams. I would recommend the later in grams

    Just remember.Ounces add up to pounds. I am no expert but It is fun to see how a little here and a little there add up.

    Use http://www.geargrams.com to add everything up and then a good electronic scale from the cooking department at Wallyworld will do just fine. Like the others said, tare function and ounces/grams option is all you need. Should be under $30 for one that will get done everything you need.

    I go to the post office late at night. I'm sure they have cameras there and must be wondering what I am doing.
