    Personally it won't really affect me. I very rarely receive a letter or anything in the mail that is very vital and timely. All I receive in the mail are bills that are due a few weeks later, and half the time I receive/automatically pay them online. As for pay checks and stuff of that nature I have everything that is direct deposited.

    Other important documents I would just have fed ex or UPS overnight it if it's that important.

    Honestly, I think they should only deliver 3 days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It would help USPS cut expenses by a lot, unfortunately though it would take a lot of jobs away. The only thing that I think USPS should do before that, I am sure there are tons of employees that are unnecessary, I'm sure their organizational chart is all screwy and they should probably optimize that first.

    My fear is that in addition to no mail on Saturdays, it will also lead to delayed delivery of the mail during the other days of the week and such delays can make it harder to pay bills in a timely manner. If that happens it will probably lead even more people to request and pay bills online to avoid late penalties and fees.

    I don't think it should be a big deal.  I get so much junk mail.

    I'm not in the US and we have never had Saturday delivery in my lifetime, people manage. Actually, most countries in the world don't have weekend delivery.

    Mail comes on Saturday?!? 

    Actually, for me, it would just be one less trip to the mail box to get all the bills and junk mail we recieve...so no biggie.

    I will not be affected at all.  I do not rely on the postal service standard delivery to deliver mail.  This decision should have been made years ago.
