How do I start collecting stamps?

It's easy. You can start by simply saving stamps from letters, packages and postcards. Ask your friends and family to save stamps from their mail. Neighborhood businesses that get a lot of mail - banks, stores, travel agencies - might save their envelopes for you, too. Or, start your collection by choosing one or two favorite subjects. Then, collect only stamps that fit your theme - art, history, sports, transportation, science - whatever you choose! This is called topical collecting.
