Holiday stamps will be available soon from the United States Postal Service. Buy stamps early, and you'll have your choice of seasonal designs.
Better still, buy stamps online from USPS.com. Holiday stamps are now available for pre-order! For a $1.00 service fee, stamps will be delivered to your mailbox--because standing in line at the Post Office is one holiday tradition that deserves to fall by the wayside.
While you're at the USPS.com site, consider ordering free mailing supplies. Flat rate envelopes and boxes can be delivered to your door, and they're ideal for shipping Christmas baked goods and small gifts. Oh, and did we mention that they're free?
Over time, maintaining clean surfaces is easier than playing catch-up at long intervals. Summer school students know the truth of this: it's easier to learn material year-round, than spend your summer catching up on all the points you missed. Regular maintenance cleaning prevents grime from building up--and avoids sweaty remedial scrubbing sessions.
