Thumbs down Stamp prices rise again

If you haven't bought them yet, you should consider investing in some Forever stamps before the price goes up again in May.

those stamps I SWEAR are going up twice a year!
 

at least they have those forever stamps now.... not that it does me much good. I like buying the specialty stamps and using those.
(right now, I've got the disney stamps)

It's pricey to mail just one letter! A 1 cent raise hardly seems helpful.

I avoid mailing anything if I possibly can. Thank gosh for being able to pay bils on the internet!

We pay all of our bills online and hardly ever mail anything. I love email and electronic bill pay for those reasons. But mailing packages and cards is going to be pricier.

I've even given up on real paper Christmas cards. The postal system is a total raquet.
 


I went to the UPS store today -- $43 bucks for 3 packages and only one needed a box and bubble. I sent them ground!!
 


Ugh!

I also found really pretty 33cent stamps in a drawer yesterday. I used two for an envelope to my mom for Vday. I wonder how much the post office makes on people like me who over pay on stamp postage!!
