USPS Forced to Remove Mail Collection Boxes Due to Popularity of Email

How Often Do You Send Snail Mail?

Poor snail mail. Since the advent of email, the free and convenient alternative, the amount of paper mail has obviously declined — and it's only getting worse for the postal service.

The Washington Post reports that the USPS is being forced to remove collection boxes around the country.

Last time I asked, over 30 percent of you sent more than 30 emails a day, and even postcard services have gone online.

But my high use of email makes me treasure paper snail mail even more — I thrill at the sight of cards (but not bills) in my mailbox, and embrace every opportunity to send paper invites. Still, I probably only send "real mail" once or twice a month.
