I just realized I made a boo-boo....

I mailed a couple of bills with old postage stamps, ie, 39 cent stamps, on them!

One was the power bill...one was the water bill...one was the termite bond....none of them I'm particularly worried about....but I also mailed that at&t payment with an old stamp on it.


I didn't realize because the stamps I used said "first class" on them, not 39 cents. When I went looking for more stamps, I found the new stamps, the ones that say "forever" on them, and then realized what I'd done.

I hope they all come back to me ASAP, or else I hope some of the good karma I've got out there in the universe will kick in and the at&t payment will make it.

    I have come very close to making the same mistake a couple times since the last postal rate increase ... I mean, so close that I was about to drop something in to the slot and I yanked it back for a final check and realized what I had done.

    Have you thought about using on-line bill pay for your smaller bills?

    I do use online bill pay for a bunch of my bills...but the water bill doesn't have that option...the termite bond didn't either...and for some reason I haven't yet signed up for online bill pay with the power co.

    And at&t offered to take the money directly out of our checking account for us, but I wasn't comfortable with that.

    I pay nearly all my bills by debit from my account - never had a problem in all the years I've been doing so. I have planned for when it comes and the variable one (phone) I get a statement.

    But I think the Canadian banking system with less small banks is more reliable than the US one.. and it is all more automated.
