Love doesn’t have to cost a body part.
Sometimes life throws a wrench into your spokes and someone you love moves away.
Except it feels more like a chainsaw.
Distance can amplify even the smallest pain, so you have to put in a little extra work to keep things running smoothly.
But pout not! There are ways to stay close even though you physically can't be — without putting a huge dent in your bank account.

Keep postcard stamps in your wallet.
Few things can replace the sanctity of actual mail. Stock up on postcard stamps, which cost a little less than regular, and whenever you go somewhere, try and find a card. Find the funniest, prettiest, or intentionally worst one, grab a pen, and send that little sucker on its way. You'll forget you sent it, and days later you'll get a happy reminder.
Snail mail something fun.
Did you know you can stamp and mail a coconut, beach ball, or brick? Or send a stinky fart? Brighten your friend's day (and make their mailman hate them) with something unusual. (Just remember, some things, like sending booze, are restricted using USPS. If you're not sure, start here.)
