    Well, I barely use mail any more. One book of stamps usually lasts for 3-4 months if not longer.... Is everyone else in the same boat?

      I used a ton of stamps for holiday cards this year. Luckily there are still a few books left over to at least get me through all the upcoming 2014 birthdays of family and friends. Otherwise... I'm typically about the same. Smile

    i dont use the mail a lot either anymore, but i still DO have to send some correspondence and bills via snail mail. i go through at least two books a month. i am not fond of having to pay a lot more, so i do prefer to stock up on forever stamps. LOL, but obviously i did not get enough the LAST time i bought them!

      I pay recurring bills online. My bank offers the service for free, probably $2-3 a month savings right there.

    probably yanbz.....just dont trust the banks to pay all of my bills. i have had problems with that service before.i do go to most of the websites directly and just pay them online. i do still have quite a few bills (doctors offices and business bills) that cannot be paid online or by phone.
