Default How much postage for a padded, 6"x9" envelope?

Shipping with USPS. I looked it up on their website, but they're giving me Priority Mail postage, $3.85 to ship. I just want to ship it like regular mail. I'm pretty sure I can just stick some stamps on here and throw it in the mailbox, but I don't know how many.

Can anyone give me some insight on how many stamps I'll need? I don't want to stick too many, but I don't want it coming back to me either. I'm shipping from work rather than home.

TIA

EDIT: Sorry guys, I am retarded for forgetting this info. It's a single DVD in a plastic sleeve, nothing more, nothing less.

for Priority to cost $3.85 it must be under 2 lbs.
I would pay for it, 2 day shipping.

Easy. 37 cents for the first ounce and 23 cents for every ounce thereafter.

if you don't have a scale, 3 stamps to be safe will do it for sure, most likely 2 will be fine. if you don't mark it, it will go first class. media mail is only good for heavy books because it is really slow.
