Savvy Shopping Tip: Stamps

Ever realize you're out of stamps — then remember that you would rather stab yourself with a sharp pencil than wait in line at the post office during your lunch break?

Well, then I think you Atlantans (and others in the southeast) will appreciate this tip: You can buy books of stamps at QuikTrip with no markup in price. That's right... QT keeps books of stamps in its registers for lazy patrons just like you and me. Pump that gas — and just as speedily as you can grab a 49-cent fountain drink, you can snag a book of stamps.

The more you know...

You can buy them at grocery stores (at least Publix) also. I can't even remember the last time I bought stamps in an actual post office! We hardly use them anymore though now that there's electronic banking :)

And speaking of post offices, I don't even use them to mail packages anymore. You can print off a mailing label online and schedule a FREE pickup at your door - it's great!

You know, I should ask more office at Publix for stamps. And I've been rocking the mailing packages from work thing, too. I wish I had a scale so I could do it at home. Good tips, CC.!

I don't have a scale for home and just estimate the weight! I'm sure I usually overestimate just in case, but to me it's better to pay slightly more than actually having to go the post office :)
