A Peek into the Post Office

The girls went on a field trip to a local post office last Tuesday. They got a little antsy through the tour but everything became worth it for them once they got the chance to ride the postal van. LOL. And then they got stickers and a coloring book. That just made the field trip for them.
It was actually more educational for us adults. Something new I learned was that all the junk mail that we receive actually is of benefit to us. It isn't simply there to annoy us. Haha. All these supermarket ads, flyers for the best weight loss pills, etc. subsidize postal costs which keep our postage costs low. According to the clerk that gave us the tour, were it not for these presorted bulk mail, postage would probably be more than $1. I now look at these in a whole new light.
