My old stamp book

Once upon a time---- yes, a long years ago, I used to collect stamps. I don't know why?  One reason is that my uncle used to work at post office, so he used to give me some commemorative stamps.

Now the book returns to me. I don't know the title I'd "stook book" .Not stamp, not stock.
At that time I was under 10.

As I have told you, I have continued disposing 15 things every week.
Of corse, disposeing means, recycling, using, giving, and throwing away.
I've started using the stamps. Today I applied for a prize using a post card and two stamps. 
So, I reused three things effectively.
The others of 15 things are worn baby clothes, and paper.

I did my weekend job, and I also made ore-cooked dishes for this coming week.

You may want to check with somebody or online- perhaps some stamps are valuable. My friend collected some as a kid and then 30 years later he could sell some of his stamps, especially if they came in series- because they were not produced anymore and very rare!

Thanks for your comment, Marta.
You are right. ---"in series" this is very important.
I have two younger brothers, so probably my uncle gave us the stamps in series, and we divided into three. So I don't have stamps only in single or two pairs.
And actually I have a few stamps in series. I'm going to take them into a cash voucher shop.
