I typically try to use their local storage as much as possible to save on shipping, so I tend to buy things in bunches. Another thing which can save you money on fees is to bid on auctions with several items included, as you pay 'per-auction'.

And considering Japanese people always package stuff with the greatest of care I've never once had problems using either Airmail or even SAL (I typically use Regular Airmail, which takes about 4 days to get here from Japan). Even SAL is no problem, sure it might take several weeks for it to arrive but it's cheeeap!
