Higher postage, again

Today I went to the post office to mail out not one but two Etsy orders from And I found out that postage is going up, AGAIN, to $.44 on May 11, 2009, or there abouts. I asked what the postage would be for the 2 oz letter, (Usually $.59 for my mailings at this point) but they didn't know yet. OK, for every order (which I love! :) I have to go to the post office and get it weighed currently. I've been keeping track so that I could mail from home, but when I almost think I know it, they go and change it again. Do most other people mailing out packages go to the post office all the time to get the rates right, or am I the only one? Well, this is a boring blog, but I wanted to pass along the rate hike info.

I weigh my stuff at home using a kitchen scale, and then plug all the info into either Paypal's shipping label creator (for domestic sales) or USPS's Shipping Assistant (for international sales). Then I just leave the package in my mailbox for my mailman to take... easy-peasy! Any questions, you know where to find me!
