Shanna, it sure does pay to stock up with the FOREVER stamps as it does add up with business mailings!  This was an informative post by Joan!  Thanks for the reminder!

I had the extra cash and bought 4 roles before the end of the year.  I got the tax right off and save $3 a roll.   I can't get that kind of a return on my money in the bank

Good morning Shanna. If we operated our business the way the post office runs their business, we would quickly be out of business.

Make it a great week!

Joe- you should try a different location- the ladies at my post office are warm and  helpful;)  And my mailmen have been incredible- I moved 3 years ago and they still will give my mail to my new mailman and he brings it to me;)

Good thing they came up with the forever stamps as it's hard to keep up with the price changes.  Looking forward to a new postcard stamp.

Thanks for the reminder!  I'm planning to go stock up with at least 500.  Most months I mail out 220 copies of my newsletter so that's a lot of stamps.  I wish the post office would just let go of Saturday delivery instead -- but Congress has said no to that.

Dianne- I agree with you a 100%.  I think dropping the Saturday mail will do more than increasing the postage- Less people will use the mail with the increases!
