    We have been seeing postage rates go up about every 8-14 months for the last few years. The post office is also talking about going to 5 days a week instead of 6 to save money. If people really want to save the planet, especially the trees, and reduce what ends up in landfills etc and save a bunch of money in tax dollars and in the corperate world, do away with the USPS. 90% of what goes through the PO is BBM; bulk business mail-junk mail directed to businesses from businesses. A large % of that never reaches the people it's addressed to for any number of reasons and what does get to the addressee gets tossed without looking at it....
