I just got an email from one of the many online photo publishing places. The email was advertising postage stamps that you can customize with your very own photo! Ooh. While it may seem like a good idea at first, I personally think you might as well take the $17.99 (the cost for 20 $0.39 stamps) and throw it directly in the trash can. That's where those cute photo stamps end up anyway - I mean, who wants to keep a tiny photo that has been marred by the stamp cancellation machine? Oh, look honey, Junior looks just like Grandpa with the inked mustache under his nose!
$17.99 for 20 stamps is nearly 90 cents per stamp! If you want to spend extra money on postage, why not buy the breast cancer stamps or another fundraising stamp where the extra cash goes toward a good cause?
