    The post office here ran out of the Forever Stamps. Can you believe it? Everyone has been buying them up.

    You can still use the stamps that do not have an amount on them. In fact if you buy a bunch now you will save money, You may use them as long as they last.

    I don't know. I don't mail letters that much, mainly packages, so it's really not worth it to me to buy hoards and hoards of them. I do have 3 books of them, that I have had since they first came out.

    Amma, the ones with no amounts are the FOREVER stamps - they will still be good, one stamp for one letter! Don't stop getting them.

    Amma, like Moonpi said....KEEP those. those will NEVER expire. Those are the ONLY stamps I have. I have actually used 2 of them one time on a letter I sent to a friend because I was too lazy to go to post office for exact amount. Letter got there fine using the 2 stamps.
    They treat the Forever Stamp just like whatever the denomination is at the time.

    Oh ya, it's been hard for me to write May. I LOVE May too, but those senior moments creep up closer and closer.

    I paid all our bills yesterday and wrote 4/7 on all of the checks. Didn't realize it until already in envelopes, so sent them on :lol: :lol: I'm sure they will take them anyway, but think an idiot wrote them.

    Thanks for reminding us about the postage, I never remember.

    I heard this too!! If I have been told correctly, most countries don't have mail delivery on Saturday's, for example: Canada. However, this would bum me out!! I am impatient when I am waiting for something to come in the mail, so I want my mail every day....so i say make 'em work Sunday's!! I'm such a brat :lol:
