Buy Stamps!

The cost of First Class mail goes up this weekend, from 50 cents to 55 cents. If you buy "Forever" stamps tomorrow for 50 cents, they'll be worth more next week.

I bought two rolls of stamps and saved $10. That's a nice falafel lunch at Mamoun's!


  1. I saw that!! I remember when they were like $.23 or something and I thought that was outrageous. It's crappy too because I do my part and mail a lot of things. Nobody can say I'm dragging the postal service down by slouching, I'm using it! ;)

  2. Thanks for the tip! I didn't know they were going up again. Time to go to the post office.

  3. I wish they would stop raising postage...

  4. I remember stocking up on some stamps when there was going to be a huge rise in the UK. They lasted me for ages and I was so smug at my saving!

  5. This is so smart- I can't believe the price hike!

  6. Yikes! What a price hike. I know the mail service actually does a lot to deliver one letter but still. Like others, I definitely remember when it was cheaper. Admittedly i didn't know it had gone to 50cents already

  7. Just wanted to check in with how you are doing. Was everything ok after your medical procedure?xx

    1. Thanks for asking, Kezzie. I'll e-mail you privately.

  8. You were very smart to do so! It makes sense the price would go up, unfortunately. I am catching up on my blog reading. I hope you are ok , post surgery!

  9. I'm glad I stocked up when I did (and seriously why does the postage keep going up? The hell!).

    XOXO and hope all is well with you, my sweet!
