Saturday Personal Finance Round-up (Get Your Forever Stamps Today)

I think the post office scheduled the increase in stamps around Mother's Day so everyone would focus on that. If you send out a 100 letters a year, buying those forever stamps will save you a couple of dollars. It's not a big deal, but if you find yourself at the store anyway, it's a little something in your pocket.

Here are some articles from around the blogosphere that I liked this week.

    I’m long in forever stamps. Cashed in all my gold, and Mrs. Dough and I have filled the garage, basement and attic with stamps. We’re covered! Oh, and thanks for the link!

  2. Lazy Man says:

    By them all out and sell them to people outside a post office for a quick 4% gain…

  3. Except, for, you know, the fact that forever stamps only go up with inflation, so you’re not really saving money by hoarding them, or making a lick of an investment by doing so, or making money by reselling them.

    Jake,

    Do you believe that we are going to see 4.76% inflation from today (Saturday) to Monday when it goes up?

    Over the long term you are right. If you could buy a million on Saturday and sell a million on Tuesday for one penny less than the post office, you’d pocket a cool $10,000 … not a bad couple of days worth…

  5. I’m probably in a tiny minority here … but even with the problems we sometimes see with the USPS, first class postage has to be one of the biggest bargains out there. I can send something through the mail for the same cost of upsizing a value meal.

    Sure, email is free, but some things are better through the mail (greeting cards, for example).

  6. Thanks for the link. I appreciate it, there will be a follow up to the above linked article tomorrow morning.
