How often do you use stamps?

I have to confess, although I have stamps, I rarely use them. I used some to send Christmas cards during the holidays. I, like most people, pay bills online. There are just a few things that come in that require a stamp to mail something off. I send birthday cards and the like, but I would be surprised if I use more than one stamp a month. I can't actually remember the last thing I mailed. Do you use stamps?

I can't think of any bills I pay with stamps. There is something every so often that comes in, that needs a stamp..but not often.

I am POA for my dad, so I pay all his bills from his account which has both our names on it. I pay by check from that account. Need stamps to mail his bills. I used to be co-owner of the account, but my bank said it was safer to be POA.

@snowy22315 That's OK!!! If I had not been the sibling stuck with being Power of Attorney, I would not have know what POA was either. I sure know what it is now, and it is a heck of a lot of work. My siblings owe me big time.

Yes if I can get hold of any that is. We have a wonderful Post Office that only opens two hours in the morning and its seven miles away. Not kidding either. I would have to go to a bigger town to get stamps and to buy them for the whole year.

@snowy22315 Now that is something as well and they only open here from 8.30 am until 10. 30 am You won´t find them open any other time. To get the woman to deliver me a recorded delivery letter like it was her job to do so was another different story and she invented everything in the book not to come and bring me that much needed letter.

Like you, I mostly use them for Christmas cards. Pensioners now get a certain number free then a discount on a few more. I forget the numbers. Of course, they bring this in when stamps are hardly ever needed any more.

Yes, I kind of think the older you are the more you are married to stamps. Although, to be honest..I do know many of the older generation who pay bills online.

I like to send little letters ro friends and whatnot so I use them for that purpose. That doesnt happen all that often though. I was sure surprised that they recently went up to 50 cents per stamp however.

Kind of a relic of a different time. Even fax machines are not used much anymore for that matter.

I bought a stamp only once in 2017. None in 2016 and 2015. That shows you how often I use stamps.

I almost never use stamps. It happens time by time if I send a real card to a friend.

Yes I use stamps all the time, I have a pen pal, a mentally challenged man in prison. I write to him often. I took care of his mother before, after she had a fall.

I always have a book of stamps handy but rarely have anything that requires a stamp except for the occasional birthday card.
