It's Official! Saturday Snail Mail Delivery Will End in August 2013

For many of us this isn't going to affect us. Most of our "mail" is online! Bill payments, email, online chat and Google hangout have replaced the need to place an envelope in the mailbox.

Our son actually asked me where did the stamp go on the envelope? But I actually remember learning in school how to address an envelope and place a stamp.

My understanding is that packages will continue to be delivered on Saturdays! You can read more of the article by clicking here.
