Someone recently asked me, “can you buy stamps at the grocery store?” To be honest, I had never thought about this before. My work requires a trip to the post office every week, so I just buy stamps when I’m there. Plus, there are a ton of options online for buying postage. However, it’s worth considering. One of the keys to a balanced life is to minimize your errands. If you don’t need to go to the post office, then you should look for other places to buy stamps. After all, why make an extra stop at the post office if you don’t need to.
