again?!?

i was just online tracking a package with the ever so lovely united states postal service. and low and behold, i notice a little "new prices may 12" tag. so i click. cause i'm just grumpy enough with my rotten stomach ache that i am just looking for something to bitch about. here it is. read for yourself.

is it just me in my extreme grumpiness or does this seem like we just did this?

SERIOUSLY!!!! Enough already. I feel like I barely get through a book of stamps before there is another increase.

i was just complaining about the CURRENT postal rates - last time i mailed stuff i almost had a heart attack. then chris informed me of the rate hike. ack! i'm ordering online from now on. postage is the same as shipping charges, practically, and it saves you the trouble.

annoying. Super annoying. I have a roll of stamps from Costco -- and now I'll need some one-centers (unless they happen to be 'forever' stamps -- whatever that is!)

Oh brother, it's probably to make up for outrageous gas prices.

Mia said...

I just bought a roll of stamps from Costco too. Ohhhh they better be those forever stamps. Humph.

Mom said...

They have been warning us for months that the rates were going up. Sounds like we need to buy only those forever stamps.

What are forever stamps? Its been so long since I've used snail mail, that I couldn't tell you what postage even is anymore.

simmer down jones... here's what i learned. the "forever stamp" will still work. whatever you buy the postage at - say if you go in tomorrow and buy a crap load of 41cent stamps. then in may when the price goes up, the forever stamps still work. that's good. they'll FOREVER keep their value. i needa stock up!

you're not wrong...we DID just do this?! I just found some old stamps from 2 increases ago on my bookshelf. haha.

yeah! way to tip about the forever stamps.
My daughter works at the UPS store and told me about these.
2 questions:
1. why have I never heard about these before.
2. why doesn't EVERYONE use these?
