How do you ship discs

I sold my first discs via the forum and was surprised how much shipping was. I used USPS cushioned envelop. What is the most cost effective method that you have found?

So $6.35 for two discs in the 175g range was pretty reasonable then?

Cheapest is to store and reuse padded envelopes, tape half a sheet of paper with the new address, ship it first class, no tracking. Usually around $2.90.
^eh, a priority flat rate padded envelope's what, about $5.90? Could maybe put three discs in that.

This is what I do, but I typically get the tracking for the additional $0.90 (I think that is the price), and I buy a pack of the padded envelopes from Walmart.

^The padded envelop was $1.89 at the PO. I usually have some around the house, but my stash got lost when I moved.

Never thought of the reusing envelops idea.

Use a bubble mailer, I've had others tear open during shipping.
