Stamp Prices Go Up: Did You Stock Up?

First-Class Mail and postcard stamps both increase by a penny on Sunday.

It seems like prices are going up on everything these days, and the U.S. Postal Service is following suit.

The price for First-Class Mail single-piece letter and postcard stamps rises by one cent to 46-cents and 33-cents respectively Sunday.

New 46-cent "Forever" stamps will allow customers to mail letters to any location in the United States. But old 45-cent "Forever" stamps will continue to be honored.

Did you to stock up on stamps before Sunday to eke out savings on your mail budget? Is the difference so small that you wouldn't miss the extra pennies? Or have you cut out much of your "snail mail?" Tell us in the comments?
