Cay and Keeper both have excellent ideas! (Keeper, you're a card, btw, lol!) I mostly use email and Facebook for my Christmas greetings, since that's something I can do without asking for help. I might mail a tiny handful of cards, but the rest get handed out at my church. The pastor's wife sets up a "temporary post office" for that purpose in the church lobby.
As for the "forever stamps," we intend to stock up before the end of this year. Thanks!
It's good to know ahead of time when these changes happen so I can plan accordingly; I often need to send packages and this way I can charge the right amount for s/h.
It would seem it's time for USPS to look at a different business model. Change delivery to Mon-Fri only, etc... My local post office will be closing. It will be a pain for picking up packages but it's probably the right thing to do.
Deeli,thanks for the heads up. I have to balance my budget,why can't they! Grrrr.
2 years ago I started donating to my local animal shelter in lieu of Christmas cards. : )
Thanks, Deeli. Readers are reminded that the "Forever" stamps are just that. If you anticipate heavy correspondence in 2012 (or even next year's Christmas cards) they might want to stock up. Cay from FL
