I just saw this story that says postage rates are going up to .42 on May 12. Whatever.
The increase is less than inflation, so really, it works out.
I don’t send much by way of the USPS these days. I pay all of my bills online. I still like mailing cards and letters from time to time, and a book of stamps lasts for months. Quite a deal, I’d say!
So here’s what I’m thinking:
Around the beginning of May or the next time I need stamps, I’ll buy a book of "forever stamps" at .41 a stamp. If I can’t get my hands on those stamps, it’s no big deal.
How much do you rely on postage stamps? Does this increase affect you?
