Cheapest way to mail and track documents going from US to Russia?

I need to mail some important documents from the US to Russia via a method that is trackable. The cheapest price I can find is $28.95 via USPS. Does anyone know of a less expensive method that includes tracking information? These are just paper documents, not a package. Thanks!

how to I become a shipping ninja?

I'm in a fairly new job where I'm preparing packages to be shipped, perhaps hundreds in a week. I hand them off to people who send them out via Fedex and US Mail, both domestic and international. I have to assess the best price to ship, get it packaged and hand it off. I'm getting blowback from not getting this right. What can I do to learn to be a shipping ninja? [more inside]

Need a cheap way to send a single pencil to someone.

What is the cheapest way to mail a single pencil to someone? I'm talking US domestic to US domestic address. An ideal solution wouldn't require a trip to the post office (although the first one I send probably would be through a desk clerk to make sure it's ok). I want something I could stick in my mail box as the need arises. Looking for suggestions for packaging material as well as postage. [more inside]
