I just can’t remember the last time I mailed a letter out since I pay all my bills online and communicate with others via emails or phone. I figured that’s just another way of being eco-friendly and saving as much paper as I can. I transfer documents electronically at work if possible or print PDF in some cases. Unfortunately some bills just can’t be paid online. My business tax renewal form didn’t get delivered for 2 cents short. I didn’t realize that the cost of mailing a first class letter is now $0.41. The new rate actually was in effect as of May of this year. If you don’t want to deal with this type of hassle, the “forever” stamp is a way to go. It will work in the future regardless of the rate changes. That’s something I’d do. Folks, holidays are just around the corner…it’s $0.41 now.
