A very prolific writing friend who does a lot of freelancing to magazines sends along a reminder about postage. When the 1st class rate for up to one once went to .41 cents, the amount for the second, third ounce, etc. dropped to 17 cents. Too many writers are just using two or more .41 cent stamps--losing .24 cents or more on each submission. Since postage can be one of your highest expenditures, it pays to get those .17 cent stamps.
