Hey Guys!

I know there are a lot of scales and balances out there but I am looking for a good calibrated scale or electronic balance that is accurate to 0.1 g. I need to find the weights of small items (like earrings and hair pins) for shipping so I don't think I need higher resolution that that. I am looking for something under maybe $30. If you think I need higher resolution than that then also comment. Any help appreciated, I am new at this.

Hoping you guys can help! Thank you. A.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CEGXDAM is inexpensive, easy to use, and will display oz as well as grams. I've been using in the kitchen for measuring hops and salts when making beer, and I've been very pleased with it. It's only $10! And it should work for items up to about 7oz / 200g.

For heavier items I've been using http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ARHITNG/ which will weigh up to 11 lbs but only in 1.0g increment.
