Magic Money Stickers

I read this comic from Megacynics and had to go look up postage rates… maybe I’ve missed something? No, postage stamps aren’t a dollar each just yet. It is currently 49 cents for a first-class letter. But if you had asked me yesterday, I really didn’t know the current postage rate -the last time I paid attention, it was 44 cents. I do send out mail, but only a few bills each month, and I buy stamps by the page, usually by sending a kid to get them. Since they are all “forever” stamps, they don’t say how much they cost on them. You know, that was a genius move on the part of the USPS. They could easily go to a dollar and few would even notice. Especially since you only buy them about once a year. But a dollar rate would certainly wipe out the few remaining Christmas card senders.

A less expensive way to buy postage stamps (for those who do use them) is to get in touch with your local club of stamp collectors; someone there can probably sell you postage at a deep discount from what it costs at the post office.
