How many postage stamps do you estimate that you use in year, excluding Christmas cards?

I can predictably say that there are only five stamps I need in a year since I went to online or automated processing for bill paying:
The license plate renewal for my car
My dad's birthday card
My daughter's birthday card
My grandson's birthday card
The Father's Day card for my dad

Through automation and bill payments online, I estimate that I save a minimum of over $40.00 a year on postage plus considerable time in writing checks. I predictably write one check a year for the license plate renewal for my car.

I pay all my bills online except for one. I write one check per month for it. I may use 5 books of stamps per year. I still like to write a few cards and letters to close friends and family... it's becoming a lost art, but I'm old fashioned that way.

I admire the correspondence people carried on during the developmental years of our nation... very revealing from Jefferson, John Adams, Ben Franklin and more. There's something about the paper, fountain pens, ink and the time to write a letter the old fashioned way that makes reading real script across the page fascinating... and more meaningful.

I dropped $8 on a set of first class stamps that I only used once. What a waste, I know, but outside of one friend that lives out of state, I've no one to use them for :-/

In a year? So far this year, I've used maybe 3 or 4. Most of my bills I pay online anymore...and my family and friends I send emails or call on the phone. E-cards are great for those who know how to open them...and for Mom and Dad...when I give them cards for birthdays, anniversaries, and Mother's Day and Father's Day, I've handed them the cards.

I can buy a book of stamps and have them last me almost a whole year.

I only use one because this bill collector has only one payment method, by mail, & thanks for reminding me of it.

Excluding Christmas cards....which I didn't even send out last year.... I probably use about 2 books a year. I still send cards sometimes and I have 2 bills that I pay by mail. One of them because they no longer accept online payments, and to pay by phone is now $4.95. Do they think people are completely stupid or what??!!
