I have never been known for being frugal, (certainly not when I’m craving things like Bettye Mueller pumps), but I’m really trying to watch my pennies lately, so throwing away money on extra postage — even if just a few cents — is really annoying. Standing in line at the post office is definitely out, so to figure out the amount of postage needed I use the post office’s online Postage Calculator.
Still it takes way too much brain power to figure out which stamps to use of the ones I have on hand without overpaying. What I really want is someone to tell me exactly which stamps to use so I can pay exact postage without any complicated equations. Coincidentally some brilliant person somewhere created a tool that does just that.
