Buy Forever Stamps

On May 12, 2008, the USPS will raise its rates again. Currently, you can by Forever stamps for 41 cents and, as their name suggests, they will be good forever, no matter how high the postage rates go. If you stock up now, you'll see an immediate return on your investment when you start using the stamps in May--you'll save one cent per stamp. And, if you have enough of them and hang onto them long enough, the savings is sure to increase.

It's up to you how much you want to invest in Forever stamps, but at least they are one investment that is sure to increase in value.

I discovered today that my Thrift blog was referenced in a feature story (part of a six-part series) by the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram on March 23rd.
