I didn't exactly enjoy moving everything I ever known to being digital and accessible online. I thought it was a little much to move the simplest of things (stamps) to being an online thing.
My wife brought online stamps to my attention when I inquired about having stamps in the house. She snickered a little and then told me we have some in our online USPS account. Then she walked out and went about her day. I sat there puzzled on what she was talking about. Stamps, online? Who thought this was a good idea?
Well, turns out this person was Einstein. I logged into our account and saw about $50 worth of pre-paid stamps. All I had to do was print however many I needed and boom that was it.
It was so much better than keeping stamps in my wallet and having to worry about ruining them if they were in there too long. I would often lose stamps by having them lying around.
