cheapest way to ship covers

What is the cheapest way to ship 1-3 diaper covers? I just looked up small flat rate boxes and envelopes and they're over $5...there has to be something cheaper. When I order a cover from a diaper website it's usually shipped in a garbage bag looking envelope...KWIM? Where could I get something like that and how much would it cost to ship it? Would I still have to go to the post office to ship it or could I schedule pickup if I knew the weight??

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!

Shipped first class. In a polymailer. You can find those on amazon or eBay

It should be less than $3, and that's pushing it. It's about $1.75/oz first class average

They will not pick up first class unless you have a priority that needs picked up

My mail carrier picks up first class

ETA: But I do, of course, print a shipping label via paypal.

If you have a mailbox they will pick them up. If you have a neighborhood box and the mailman doesn't come to your house they will not pick up fc mail. You have to schedule a pick up for the priority anyways and on it it states must have one priority or express item to pick up a fc

You can print the label and package it up, then drop it in any outgoing mail or give to the mail guy
