    anything that isn't heavy or live should go Parcel Post I would ship plants Parcel too.

    Hobbs, the extra cost was probably for tracking.
    Print postage online USPS or Paypal and tracking is free
    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    Picked up more boxes at the postal service.

    Small priority box is now $5.80 and medium sized box is $12.30.

    Flat rate box prices went up at the end of January. I haven't sent anything with flat rate shipping in a long while. Depending on the size and weight of the package, cheaper to ship by priority mail instead.

    Where do you get the boxes? My post office must hide them because they only set out the flat rate priority. Those are fine for shipping fish but not needed for plants.

    I stopped at a Pack n Ship joint the other day to see if I could buy some small boxes from them. They wanted $26 for 10 small boxes! I about choked. Then I ask her what it would cost to send one of those small boxes to CA. She said $16. hahahahahaha
    Are you kidding me! The box was the size of a book.

    I get them online off the usps site for free and they ship to your door. The local post office will sometimes have them, sometimes have to ask for them. For larger amounts you have to ask them to get the out from the back. I tend to use the 7x7x6 priority boxes the most, with about half a cup of water they seem to ship for around $6.50-$8, cost varies on weight and distance.

    I wouldn't pay for boxes, can always repurpose small cardboard boxes from grocery or other stores.

    Thought I would add this, tracking numbers are included in the price when you mail a package now, used to be an additional fee.
