Help what is the cheapest way to ship

What is the cheapest way to ship a 1lb 8oz box. I saw people shipping them for 6,00. But whenb I checked the USPS site they told me almost 9.50. Am I missing something here?

go to usps.com & you can find it there. click on calculate shipping on the 1st page
I would think that they are probably using a flat rate mailer/box, will your item fit in the smaller options going priority flat rate?
I was using the 7x7x6 pirority box The small flat rate box is to small to fit my items in and the medium flat rate is to big.
Yes, for $6 they are undoubtedly using a small flat rate box.

You may need to ship parcel post instead, to cut down on costs.
Thanks everyone. I think I figured it out. The flat rate envelopes are much cheaper. That should work for what I need to ship. Now to go lay down. I have a large headach after tring to figure this all out. LOL
Depends on the dimensions of the box as well. Parcel post is cheapest
My items range from 2-7 lbs and I have found Parcel Post to be the cheapest although not the fastest. In this weight range the Flat Rate Boxes are more expensive as they are Priority Mail.
