U.S. Postal Service to end Saturday mail delivery

New delivery cuts are being announced Wednesday by the U.S. Postal Service.

Mail carriers will stop delivering mail on Saturdays, but will continue to deliver packages six days a week.

The plan is expected to save about $2-billion a year for the financially struggling agency.

It’s not clear whether congress will have to approve the changes.

They’re expected to begin in August.

    Heres a new idea, lets save more money by keeping Saturday service and stopping Monday service. Most federal holidays are on monday, this way the taxpapers get a break and the mail people can enjoy the federal holidays.

    I often wonder why the Post Office is on the rocks and all the other agencies are spending money like Drunken Sailors on Shore Leave?

      Better yet I’ll take USPS every other day! One route Mon, Wed, Fri, the other Tue, Thu, Sat…..save on gas, pollution and expenses. More urgent issues are already done electronically or privately

    Get rid of all the junk and "duplicate" junk mail. Bring us the important stuff that doesn't take hours to go through. I have other things to do all day. I would miss Saturday mail if it's discontinued.

    Thanks for the new stuff you have revealed in your text. One thing I’d really like to reply to is that FSBO human relationships are built after some time. By introducing yourself to the owners the first end of the week their FSBO is definitely announced, prior to the masses commence calling on Thursday, you make a good relationship. By mailing them methods, educational elements, free accounts, and forms, you become an ally. By using a personal affinity for them in addition to their predicament, you make a solid interconnection that, in many cases, pays off if the owners opt with a broker they know in addition to trust — preferably you actually.
