    There was plenty of notice that stamps were going up on May 12th.

    Due to the high cost of STORING your mail, you must now pay an extra penny.

    ...and plenty of time for the post office to get enough make up stamps so they wouldn't run out of them...

    Still cheaper than hand delivering the bills myself.

    Why don't they just raise the price of mailing a letter to $5.00 and leave us alone for 25 years?

    Double the cost of "junk mail" and those flyers and leave regular postage alone

    I was a little surprised a couple of weeks ago when my wife came home and announced that she saved us some money by stopping by the post office and buying some forever stamps. I must admit though that I was somewhat stunned when she added that she bought a little over $80 worth.

    Maybe next week I'll pick up at least $80 worth of ammo on the premise that ammo prices are also going up.

    I've still got about half a roll of .39 stamps so we've been adding the additional .02 stamp since the previous rate increase. I had to buy more of the .02s a couple weeks ago anyway so I bought 2 rolls' worth ($82) of the Forever Stamps while I was there. Heck, at this rate I won't have to buy stamps again for 5 years.

    It hit me the other day that I was mailing out a few bills and without the addition .01 stamps all I could do was a .39 + (2) @ .02 each ... oh well, USPS got a few extra pennies that day.

    They put a penny stamp on it for you. You can also tape the amount of the stamp to the envelope and they will replace it when it gets to the PO.
    At least 15 years ago they did when I played 1000 questions with a Post Master bc I was bored. In this wonderful world today, I don't think I would trust them to do that anymore.

    I think that the .42 is still to cheap. Somebody walks to your door and checks to see if you have outgoing mail or not. If you have a letter in the box they take the letter and carries it most of the day until returning to the post office where it gets sorted and shipped to central hub and sorted again and shipped back and delveried to a house across the country or across the street for only .42. I could not do that for 42.00
