A Helpful Tip, Weather, and American Idol (sort of)

In light of the recession we find ourselves in, I have some important information to share.

Postage is going up again in May.

For some reason, this news seems to have totally flown under the radar. And yes, they just totally restructured the postal fees one year ago. So, I'm telling you this so that you can take advantage of the forever stamp y'all (whoa, throwback to my Georgia days!). Stock up on it! Or better yet, go paperless on everything you can. That will save you even more money, and is probably kinder to the environment.

See? I'm your friend! (no one in RL seemed to know about this, so I figured maybe no one in Blog Life did either)

In other news, it hailed here today!! I was totally mystified by the sound that made me think the roof was about to cave in. Then I peeked out the window and low and behold....bits of white stuff flying everywhere! How interesting!! (you know you're interested)

And finally in American Idol related news...I finally downloaded Melinda's "My Funny Valentine" single. She totally rocks. Well, actually that song isn't necessarily all that rocking, but I think you get the idea. In any case, she's going to release a CD! Yay! I hope it's good.

Have a great Sunday everyone! (Happy Palm Sunday!)

Did you know that postage is now tagged to inflation and can/will be adjusted every year?
It used to be a really long application process that took forever and so it was years between increases, but it was like 5 cents at at time. This way it will probably only be one or two cents at the most, but every year.

Wow, thanks for this. I had not heard about the postage going up.

I had not heard about the postage! thanks for the heads up!

Krista, yes I did know that. :( That's why it's a good idea to get the forever stamp now. That won't help with other types of postage though, like flat rate priority mail which is my best friend.

Everyone're welcome!
