I am looking to clean up a lot of my wiring this season

I have one quote so far for 3 rolls of 100 metre of 4core RGB wire at $158US (inc shipping). Has anyone seen any better deals lately for 3 or 4 core wire (18awg preferred, but ok with 20)?

The one issue with holidaycoro for me is that they won't ship up to Canada, so I always need to find a mule to help me. My parents live 10 min from Buffalo, so I may end up one day getting one of those post boxes and get them to bring things across for me.

I know...i know....i'm just like wow too!!

The CDN dollar is taking a s******t kicking right now (yeah I added a few extra *s!) so for whatever reasoning (and this makes NO SENSE to me) the price of gas is down  but the import costs from China are up. I just don't get economics. Wouldn't a lower price of gas equal lower shipping costs?

A quick note on getting a mailbox in the States. There are various companies that now offer virtual mailboxes so you don't have to pay a monthly fee to maintain a phyiscal box. I live in St. Catharines and have used a mailbox setup through www.kinek.com. For a small box you only pay $5.00/box, the heavier items cost more. A friend of mine uses a different company that charges $6.00/box but that company is open Sundays and later on weekdays where the one I use has more limited hours. I have only used Kinek three times so far, with no problems. I even declare everything at the boarder and get waived through. One time a company wanted $90 to ship to Canada and only $20 to ship to Niagara Falls, NY so it was a nice option to have.
