Re: Cheapest way to ship

I ship first class unless it is over 13oz and then I ship priority after that since Parcel post is usually just as expensive or a little more expensive for me.

Depends on the weight and size. If its heavy and fits in a PFRE, I use this instead.

If it is heavy or going commercial or to a large city, sometimes UPS is cheaper.

This and I also LOVE that I can print at home, schedule a free pickup from home if I am not going out, so no extra gas used either. Priority is usually 25-30 cents more, so I always opt for it if it is that close... you get free DC too w/Priority if you print at home, which makes it even closer in price to PP.
