PSA: Postage

Maybe this isn't a PSA--because the rest of you probably know this, but...I weighed my invitation at work on our postage machine and it weighed in at $.61.  So I bought my beautiful wedding cake postage stamps, yay.  But just to be sure, I took my invitation to the post office today--and it weighed in at $.64.  So I had to buy ugly $.03 cents to go with my pretty ones.  Boo.But lesson learned for me anyway--weigh your invitations at the post office and nowhere else!

    gah, I hate usps.  Their scales are always higher than any one else's.  I'm sure if I took my invites up there they would have weighed more but I put the wedding ring stamps on them and dropped them in the box and I haven't gotten one back.

    Gah, Jana that is maddening.  I was like, "Are you surrrreeee they aren't $.61?"  He was even feeling through the envelope and asked me if I had anything hard in there and I said yes, an embellishment.  *sigh* Better safe than sorry though.

    I am so sure their scales are off, once I weighed something at work then at home and took it to the P.O. and of course it weighed more there.  Frustrating since they already charge so much to send stuff, UPS needs to start letter delivery.

    I was so sure mine weren't even the $.61 and my mom insisted I bring one to the post office before I just bought the ring stamps for them- thank goodness, they were $.61. darn USPS
