I, like you, would hate to see the USPS come to an end. To me, that just doesn’t make any sense. However, with internet banking and pay-by-phone, the mail I receive and send from my home has become less and less time sensitive over the years. So, one cost cutting measure would be to deliver the mail 3 or 4 days a week rather than 6. I can certainly wait an extra day to get the junk mail that I toss in the garbage and I probably won’t get around to reading those magazines until the weekend anyhow. I am not sure how much money this would save but it seems like it would certainly save some money on fuel, labor, vehicle maintenance, etc. This would be especially true in rural locations.
