Until today, I was only allowed by the Postcrossing website to have 5 postcards in transit at a time. This evening, I saw that they raised the limit for seasoned Postcrossers. Since I have sent over 250 postcards, I can now have as many as 13 postcards in transit. So this evening, I wrote an additional 8 postcards and used up all my 90-cent and 69-cent stamps just in time for the postal rate hike. Funny how things work out.
I'll mail the cards early tomorrow morning. Then next week, I'll get stamps for the new international postcard rates. (72 cents to Canada and Mexico, 94 cents to all other countries) I'll also get new postcards from the Garden State Parkway rest area since I also used up all my postcards tonight.
