If you are a frequent letter/postcard sender, you’ll want to take note of the United States Postal Service changes that are set to take place on January 22nd, 2012. On this date, the price of Forever Stamps will increase from 44¢ per stamp to 45¢ per stamp (this is the first time that the price of Forever Stamps has increased since May 2009!). In addition, you can expect the following changes…

* Postcards: 3¢ increase to 32¢
* Letters to Canada or Mexico (1 oz.): 5¢ increase to 85¢
* Letters to other international destinations: 7¢ increase to $1.05

Check out this news release for more information. If you are running low on stamps, I would encourage you to head to your local Post Office today or tomorrow to snatch up several books of Forever Stamps since you will save yourself 1¢ per stamp. A penny saved is a penny earned. 😉

On a side note, check out this graphic below. Can you believe that the price of stamps back in 1885 was as low as 2¢?!

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
