I am sending back an item that only cost 10 bucks and I am being
charged a 3 dollar restocking fee.
I plan on taking a picture of the package with postage stamped on it
at the post office.
I figure that is about as much insurance the package is worth.

I have never insured a package in my life. I send things USPS priority
with tracking and I have never lost anything.
Usually on small value things that are defective or just the wrong
part, they give me a credit and tell me to keep what I have.
I have 2 bad USB sticks sitting here as we speak (from Ebay) and both
were credited, no return requested.
I guess the real issue is how many things are actually "lost in the
mail" these days.
That does not include things that are simply stolen off the front
porch or out of the mailbox after it is delivered.
If the item was only $ 10 and you are paying $ 3 restocking and probably a
couple of dollars shipping, I wouls not be worth the time to do that. I
think I would just keep the item and find a use or give it to someone.
A few yars ago I ordered something off Ebay on a buy it now item. It was 10
connectors that were listed as something it was not. They were about half
the size as they were advertised. As it was only around $ 10 I sent the
seller a note (they had lots of items for sale) stating that it was the
wrong size and not as advertised, but due to the low price it was not worth
it to ship it back and said I may find a use for them. A while later they
sent me a note saying that I was right and the size was wrong and they were
going to credit what I paid back to me .

I left out a couple of details (OK I lied). Since I ordered the thing
from one of Amazon's suppliers they are going to give me a 3$ credit
for the restocking fee and as soon as I find out how much the shipping
is, Amazon is going to refund that too.
If the package goes missing, we will see how far I can get with the
