Philosateleian Post 2018 year in review
With the 2018 calendar year now officially in the books, I can take a look back at Philosateleian Post’s numbers and see how my outgoing mail flow in 2018 compared to years past.
2018 was not by any means Philosateleian Post’s busiest year ever. It seems my household had about a 10% decrease in the number of pieces of mail we sent last year (374) compared to 2017 (417). The drop in volume is fairly consistent across the board—letters, bills, etc.—although we did send a couple of extra postcards.
Even the lower number is still far above what I sent in 2016, however; that’s the year we relocated to Texas.
One interesting side note: the number of items I marked “return to sender” last year was exactly the same as in 2017. It seems like someone’s not cleaning their mailing lists very well!
