I'd check FedEx Ground for rates. They are consistently cheaper than
any of the above, and you can ship from any Kinkos, since FedEx own
When I was doing a lot of EBay stuff year before last, essentially I found

around $10 via parcel post, FedEx ground would be the best rate. I
sent huge electronic keyboard (music) with it's folding metal stand and
stool for ~$60 iirc.
