Although you may not send many letters or bill payments the old fashioned way through the U.S. postal service, it still pays to stock up on forever stamps. It protects you from future price increases which are a certainty. You will appreciate them if you still send out many holiday or birthday cards. The current price is 44 cents, the same as a first class stamp at the present time. In addition to the first one, the Liberty Bell design, there are now four evergreen stamps.
Another way to save when mailing packages is to use one rate boxes whenever you have something to send that is relatively heavy, but not necessarily that large. The post office has three different sizes which can accommodate a variety of shapes. These are particularly useful when sending something across the country.
