I don't ever buy stamps. Except maybe to buy Christmas cards. I do all my bills, banking and other stuff online. Just wondering how often other people buy and use stamps. I also recently started pen-paling. So I am going to try and purchase some stamps online. How do you get yours? From the post office or online? Plain or fancy? Well here we go I am going to go stamp hunting.

I still use a few stamps a month, mainly for cards and thank-you notes, and for the few bills we don't pay online. This time of year, I use many more for holiday cards. I usually get the Forever stamps from the automated teller machine, whenever I mail a package.

The biggest time of the year where you will receive hand written cards are like you said, for holiday seasons. Most likely of course for Christmas. It feels nice to receive a letter from someone at Christmas, as it is personal. Most avoid mailing in envelopes as it cost time and money. However, it is the holiday season, and many must remember that it is much better to give than to receive. I love giving more than receiving, which might be weird for some but that's just me, and I'm so happy even if I receive the cheapest present, as it came from the heart.

It is not very often that I use stamps these days, but I always make sure that I have some. On scarce occasions I will require a stamp, so I usually have a book of first class stamps in my wallet. They tend to last for a long while, but I alsways replace them rather than risk needing a stamp when it is inconvenient to go out to buy one. With stamps being quite cheap and so easy to carry around it seems the obvious thing to do.

Until last year, I used a couple hundred a month. Now except for the month of December sending out cards, I use one or two a month or less. I actually carried 4 stamps in my wallet forever. Then two forever. Then this month my daughter borrowed them.

I rarely use stamp nowadays. I have no time to go to Post Office since my trust them was already depleted. I'd rather choose emails.

I used to be a stamp collector when I was a kid. Now I have never bought stamps anymore as most of my communication are done through the computer. I didn't know that you can buy stamps online.

I tend to pay online only if it doesn't charge a fee. If it does then I will spend money on stamps just to send it in the mail. I try to avoid going out too much because it's so cold on anymore. I write the occasional letter every now and again, so the book of stamps come in handy too. I also send birthday cards and holiday cards because "ecards" don't really do it for me. I go to the post office and purchase books of forever stamps. Actually, I just got a book of the evergreen/Christmas ones. I plan on sending all my holiday cards out in this week. Been a little behind on things.

I barely ever use stamps for anything. When I pay a bill I usually do it online or go to the store to pay it.

I also belong to people who rarely buy stamps. To me, stamps are not an effective way. To send the letters, I'd rather by registered mail
