Here are the current USPS rates for domestic and international mail.
Fortunately, there are 3 things you can do to save money on postage, both during the holiday season and afterwards:
- Don’t stock up on Forever Stamps trying to save money before the next stamp hike. It turns out you only save a few cents per month when you do this, and it’s not worth it. Just buy stamps when you need them instead.
- Use the flat rate boxes the post office provides for free to send your packages. The cool thing about these boxes is that you can stuff as much as you want into them, and the box still goes for the same rate.
- Pay your bills online. You can save a lot of money on postage stamps by paying your bills online instead of mailing checks.

My favorite things to write about are topics that have to do with pregnancy, weddings, saving money, living green, and life with dogs. When I’m not writing, I love to spend time with my husband, read, create 3D artwork and Native American beadwork.
