    Less letters but way more parcels over the years.
    Why some people say they don’t need post office? Hundreds and thousands of people use postal services for many different reasons.
    and trust me, you don’t want all your online purchase to be delivered by UPS and such.

    If you send lots of letters Costco carries 100 rolls for $58.49. that is >>59 per stamp. They don’t expire so you can use them for the next 10 years if you need to.
