Nothing compares to coming home to those little white envelopes. It's practically addicting. I frequently set aside my padded mailers filled with autos, GUs and 1/1 to tear into a SASE when the occasion allows.

In that spirit I have declared 2010 the year of the TTM (in this house at least). I'm sure I will regret such an aggressive goal but here goes.

200 Returns
400 Successes


I will be starting a separate thread thread that tracks ALL successes. I'm going to get off to a nice start as I have sent about 60 just in Decmeber.

Wish me luck. I'm going to need it.

Wow, good luck! I love TTMing, but can never sit down to write the letters. Every once in a while, I will write a lot in a few day spurt, but I can never seem to get as many back as you. That should be an awesome project, I hope you can do it! :D :D :D

I know what you mean. I have cut way back on sending out due to the economy, but will get back into it. I wish you all the luck in the world on your TTM goal for 2010. Go for it, Ed!

Mostly I'm concerned about the financial aspect. I have a very small budget. From my calculations I need to purchase about 4 books of stamps a month but at least I have a good head start.

I always forget that part until I need to run to the post office and get stamps.

Good luck! Those are definitely obtainable goals... just break it down monthly. In 2009, I, overall, got 1,246 returns back from the requests I sent - bad news is got 51 RTS and 32 failures also :-\

you should be able to hit your goal with dedication. I wish you luck and I am gonna try to get some good returns too. Duke Snider is always one of my favorites. I look forward to seeing what you get ;)

That's a pretty good success to failure ratio!
