I have left a lot of US purchases in the online cart when I find out they send through UPS. I will not deal with them at all!
This is why I have a US p.o. box. I share it with one friend. It is $40 for the year, so $20 each. That is worth it in shipping fees alone, as lots of places ship at actual cost to US addresses.
I go to the box and p/u when I head down for groceries. I sooo love living close to the border (about once a month go there).
