    For the past several years the U.S.Postal system has offered the "FOREVER" stamps.

    The "FOREVER" stamps are good for FOREVER... no matter how many times the postal rates go up or how much a stamp will cost in the future...

    The last time I got stamps, I bought ten books of the "FOREVER" stamps and saved myself some money when the price of stamps went up to 42 cent..

    And... I am going to do the same thing this year... I am going to go to the post office and buy 400 "Forever" stamps at 42 cent each....

    That is $168.00 for 20 books of 20 stamps each at $8.40 per book.

    I use about 10 stamps per month... which means that I will have enough 42 cent stamps to last me for the next 40 months... (3 1/3 years)

    and no matter how much the cost of stamps increase over the next 3 1/3 years, I can still mail a letter for only 42 cent...

    So if you folks don't like the idea of postage stamps going up in April... do like me and go buy a bunch of the "FOREVER" stamps now before the price goes up..

    I pay all of my bills except trash and exterminator on-line...that's saved me more money than forever stamps would!

    He just would not believe me...you know Rod...To clarify this, Rod did not believe that each post counted...He said if you stayed in one thread they did not add up, they do..

    Why mail when you can use e-mail and the Internet. Being a full-timer (still) I set up automatic on-line pay the bills with my bank on any repeat bills like insurance, mail forwarding and storage space. That way I don't forget and I don't have to mail the bills.

    I helped the U.S. PO stay in business when I had the Condo contract sent overnight (EXPRESS) mail to me and I sent it back overnight $$$$$$$$$. The biggest problem is that it took 2 days to get to me. Not overnight . Just can't trust anyone anymore. :laugh: :bleh:
