yeah the flat rate boxes are pretty good. i still choose UPS over USPS though because i can be certain that whatever i send out will make it safely. For small stuff though I use the post office

I only use UPS as a last resort, they are slow and even my UPS driver wont ship anything valuable with UPS.

Love the flat rate boxes! I shipped my torsion keys with those, and if you pay postage online you get a tracking number to boot! I always check USPS before UPS now....
