I should also point out that the PO box rental rate has climbed rather 
quickly in recent years, from the $150 or so per year we used to pay, at 
a rate much higher than most other cost increases.  It used to make a 
lot of sense to stick to the same address, and keep renewing year after 
year, but perhaps less so as time goes on.  :)
