Am thinking about finally sending some thank you notes to catch up with the rest of the world. Found my stamps and realized I am not entirely sure how many stamps to use, partly since I haven't kept up with the price of postage and partly am still somewhat confused trying to adjust from the An Post mail system, in which one can mail things on Sunday and mail a package from virtually any corner store.
I have various stockpiles of stamp books which I purchase every time I have this problem, last time this snail mail problem was solved by the "Forever" stamp, which is apparently good, well, forever? A large number are going on sale now, until May 12th, when the USPS is changing the price of a standard stamp to 42 cents, yet the Forever Stamp will still work. Read about it here, but not here, because this full rate table will make it clear why FEDEX is superior.
