Here is an article I found about it: http://www.suntimes.com/business/2130278,CST-NWS-post30.article

They have not cancelled mail delivery on Saturday yet, they are just talking about it.

Here is the proposal by the Postal Service to have a 5 day delivery schedule: http://www.usps.com/communications/newsroom/2010/pr10_031.pdf#search=%275%20day%20delivery%27

It looks like it has to be approved by Congress.

Meh… I think the post office kind of sucks. Encouraging people to do more things online might be a good thing 🙂

 

I’m prob in the minority but I would LOVE if e-vites became the in thing to do!

LOL.

It would not affect us at all if they delivered one day less.

haha i guess i was thinking forward to the eventual demise of the entire system 🙂 I’m very pro-kramer on this issue (not to be confused with pro-keith richards)

That would piss me off because I have a 9-5 M-F job with an ugly commute and I can only really go to the Post Office on Saturdays. But I mean, why cater to people with jobs?

Yep they are just talking about it. I think they will still deliver packages and maybe even to PO Boxes for businesses.  I think the Saturday mail to the houses could be a good thing.  Prior to the wedding I checked the mail every other day because it was mostly junk mail.  Now I check it daily for wedding stuff.

@msmonicka: It happened about a month ago!

I agree with Kitty that it would be a pain to get to the post office once I have a job.  I really don’t have to go much right now except when I sell things online but I’d rather not have to rush there after work.

Haha Monicka.  We did too the first week or so after we sent invites out.  I could not wait to get home!  And then we got none for weeks…very anticlimatic and the excitement of getting them dwindled to zero.

I have heard this too. They haven’t put it into effect yet, but they have been trying to stop Saturday mail delivery for a very long time.

@ CorgiTales: I just recently had to explain to my dear sweet Fiance why it would be NOT okay to send people evites. He was really pushing for it as he saw me cutting and pasting my pocketfolds.

Of course it may not have been that he wanted to save me the trouble – he might have just wanted the mess off of our dining room table. 🙂
