Postage stamp values - grrrrr....!
« on: April 01, 2015, 04:25:47 PM »
Six times a year I post approximately 500 envelopes within the UK. Until a couple of days ago they cost £1.17 each to post, now they cost £1.19 each.

Are £1.19 stamps available? Of course not, to get that value I have to stick on a 63p, a 54p and a 2p or a 50p, a 54p and 3x5p. Or I could stick on a £1 and a 20p and 'donate' a fiver each posting to the newly privatised Royal Mail.

Why, whenever stamp prices are increased which seems to happen every year, can't single stamps be available at each postage rate? It's not chuffin' rocket science...!! Grrrr......!!!

 :-? Zeeeesss how big are your envelopes  :-?

Hubby called at local post office on Monday for two new books of first class stamps as he said 'they would be going up soon.

Too late - he was told they had gone up 'that day'  :))
He was not a happy bunny  :))
