    As of Jan 2nd the price of flat rate shipping went up. I went to send a small box to my DD and it has gone from 4.95 tp 5.20 They get us coming and going, don't they?
    The Clerk said it was because the two cent postage increase was denied that they had to make it up somewhere.

    I guess, on the bright side, it was still cheaper than UPS or Fedex whose rates start at about $9.00 for home delivery.

    It is frustrating, though.

    I saw that to about postal rates are going up. They are claiming that the internet is the cause of the postal rates going up. People are not sending much for letters anymore.

    You gotta blame someone/something :( I use bill pay at the bank-it is SO easy and fast. I only need stamps for birthday and get well cards. AND for swaps here! Ebay should be providing extra revenue and other like sites. Oh, well......
