Best place to purchase a scale for shipping purposes

I know the USPS has a 10lb scale for $50 but where did you buy your scale from?

I'm looking for a scale that weighs up to at least 30lbs.

you can find all kinds of scales online. Either food oriented, hardware oriented or scientific oriented, there are tons of options.

I bought a food scale from Walmart that weighs up to 12 lbs. I then bought a luggage scale off of Amazon for $5 to weigh heavier stuff. You hang it up, put stuff in a plastic bag, and then hook it on the scale. So far both of them have worked great. Bot scales have a tar weight so you can weigh the bag or box and then zero it out and put the other stuff in it.
