Buy more "50" 50-stamped stamps each, today … or call a more for one one when the post office opens again Monday.
The cost of sending a first class letter rises to 55 cents, tomorrow (Sunday, January 27).
How can you handle the rise, New Jersey?
Go through drawers for unused postmarks! Isn't it almost the same as "free?" It also makes a colorful envelope.
Remember: If the envelope does not have a 55 cent postage on it … it will return to you for postage due . But … does it not cost the post office more than 5 percent difference to return the envelope to 5 cents? Sorry … just thinking aloud.

BEWARE! More than just the first class post course goes up!
New Jersey was the subject of a postage stamp when first class mail cost a nickel … not the increase:
This New Jersey stamp remembers the 300th anniversary of the English colonization of the state. It shows Philip Carteret landing at Elizabethtown, in front of a map of the Garden State. The design is taken from a mural by Howard Pyle, in the Essex County Courthouse in Newark. First release date: June 15, 1964 in Elizabeth New Jersey.
Remember: Add this New Jersey stamp or equivalent tomorrow.
And every day until next increases.
If it helps … all pay more … not only New Jersey.
