My dh makes trips to the PO a couple of times a week and keeps track so he writes it off at the end of the year.
We go to town fairly often so it isnt a chore to stop at the PO.
Have no experience with the other things you have mentioned. Dh uses PayPal but i didnt know you could buy postage from them
The online stamps places cost more than dh would like to put out a month.

I'd start with just going to the PO (and you can print priority postage for free from the USPS site) and see what your volume ends up like. If it starts to get to be too much and you think it might be time/money saving for another service, then you can research which would serve you best =)

I use both stamps.com (my personal account) and endicia (I do order fulfillment for another WAHM and that's what she uses) and I prefer the interface of stamps.com by far. It's more expensive ($16/month) but it's SO much easier to use. Endicia uses a clunky old style windows program and it's not intuitive at all and I just find it annoying. Endicia so far has been really slow to refund misprinted postage, but I've never sent in postage to stamps.com for a refund so I don't know if they are any better.
I'm intrigued by paypal postage but I haven't actually tried it out yet.

I was going to the PO every week, but it got to be a huge pain. So, I went and bought a $30 (5lb) scale at Office Depot and I'm paying for and printing lables from PayPal. Then I just stick them in the mailbox for the mail carrier to pick up. If have more than what will fit in the mail box, I can arrange for pick up through usps.com and my mail carrier will either ring the bell to pick up, or I can leave them outside for her to pickup.
edited to add: You can use Priority,Parcel Post, First Class, and Media Mail with PayPal now.
