I am the very model of a modern major cheapskate

Yesterday we received our first paychecks. This is undoubtedly the largest biweekly paycheck I or anyone I am related to ever had. The understandable impulse is to send it off to the bank. However, my subletter called to let me know that she's sending the first month's rent and it should arrive soon, so I'm holding off on depositing my paycheck until I can send them both at once and save the extra stamp.

They are Lewis & Clark stamps, after all. Why waste 37 cents worth of something so pretty?
