Snail Mail: It’ll cost you

From the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON — Mailing a letter will soon cost a penny more.
The cost of a first-class stamp will rise to 42 cents starting May 12, the U.S. Postal Service said today.
The price of the Forever stamp will go up at the same time, meaning those stamps can still be purchased for 41 cents but will remain good for first-class postage after the rate increase takes effect.

I bought some Forever stamps for 41 cents during the most recent price hike, tucked them away, feeling a little ridiculous but this news today made me feel wiser rather than a miser.

Anyone else purchase Forever stamps? And will this increase turn you away from snail mail whenever possible? Or does it make any difference?
