The last time I used a stamp, it was 28 cents. I heard a rumor that they went up to 32 cents some time afterward.

I guess the only time I send anything out through snail mail is when I gotta cough up cash for a package.

I've got a bunch of 32 cent stamps that I'm going to use to make up the difference.
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 10:44:23 AM EDT
I used them all last week to ship some packages at the post office, put a bunch on stamps on each package without going over the total postage and made the clerk do a label for the balance, then I bought some new 39 cent stamps. Smart move as the post office was all out of 1 and 2 cent stamps the next day when I had to mail something else

relevant thoughts from Boortz (http://boortz.com/nuze/200601/01102006.html#stamps)


NOW HERE'S ONE OF MY MORE BRILLIANT IDEAS

I don't know how many 37-cent stamps I have sitting around the home and office. Too many. Two-cent stamps? None! And I'm not likely to have to suffer the frustration of actually visiting a post office to get any. One, you have the lines, and two, you have postal counter employees. It's just not worth it, so this morning I put two 37-cent stamps on a letter. Thirty-nine cents to mail the letter, and 35-cents to avoid the hassle. Now, here's an idea. Why doesn't the USPS create a rule, a temporary rule, allowing people to take scissors and cut up their 37-cent stamps? Cut each stamp into thirds .. and then we can use those one-third stamps with a whole 37-cent stamp until our supply is exhausted! The Postal Service is still getting extra postage on first class mail, and their customers are saved the agony of a trip to the post office to buy two-cent stamps! Now, I'm one to experiment. This morning I took an envelope and addressed it to myself. I put one and one-third 37-cent stamps on the envelope. I then wrote "excess postage" on the envelope right under the stamps. I'll report

Why even bother with the Post Office?

Just roll your own.
