But, every once in a while I still need to stick a stamp on an envelope and send something. And, since I like having a well stocked office (in addition to a well stocked kitchen), I try to never run out of supplies – stamps, paper, ink, envelopes, etc.
Post office prices are going up on January 27th. The cost of mailing a standard letter is going from 46¢ to 47¢ – a minor increase, to be sure.
But, having used up the majority of my stamps to sent out our Christmas letter, I was running low. No sense waiting until January 28th to buy some more!
