Writing and mailing letters.......
It's not something I do that often, in fact I only correspond on a regular basis with our next door neighbour in England; and by regular I mean I send a letter maybe four or five times a year. On Tuesday I sat down and wrote a letter to them; then while I was cleaning out a drawer I found another note card from an acquaintance in the States, so I also wrote a note to her.
I went to the post office on Wednesday and discovered that the cost of mailing these letters has increased again. It now costs $1.80 plus tax to mail a letter to Britain, and $1.05 plus tax to mail a letter to the States. Even sending a letter in Canada costs 61 cents.
With these prices I am guessing it is one reason that sending an email is so popular. Though I will say I find an email not as personal and would prefer people to call me to talk. Must admit though, it is nice to sit down with a cup of tea and a biscuit, reading a letter.
Do you write letters or notes and mail to people?
FYI: Shopper's Drug Mart is having a "Spend $75 and get 18,500 Points," this weekend. So hunt out your coupons and match them with the deals and earn those points. Oh, and don't forget to buy a Shopper's gift card first to pay for your groceries, and get points for buying it.
I am hoping to use $10 worth of coupons, to bring my total including taxes below my $75 weekly budget.
