MovingFilter - Alright, Mefi, one last time. In about 24 hours, we need to load up our car with our worldy possesions and ship the rest for our move cross country. How best to ship about a dozen boxes of a standard size?

As it turns out, a Malibu is a poor frieght vehicle. We're cramming it full of the essentials, the items we don't want out of our sight. Our books and DVDs are already riding Media Mail to our destination. But we're running out of media to ship about as fast as we're running out of room in the car.
What we're left with is round about a dozen small boxes. They're filled with a broad assortment of items - notebooks, picture frames, just assorted sundries, you know? We're moving on a razor-thin budget and need to ship these things as inexpensively as possible.
So I call upon the hive mind's help with our move one last time. We need to get these boxes on the move from North Texas to Washington state within the next two days. Is the USPS the best value in shipping, or is there a better way?
Your help is deeply appreciated.
