Hi Kees & All...

The U.S. Post Office sells INTERNATIONAL m.o.'s as well---I think they cost
as much to buy as the DOMESTIC variety ($2.50 ea., if I'm not mistaken...).

That's a REALLY good deal on those Wal-mart money orders...wonder if they
sell them up here in Canada, too...? Worth looking into, for sure...
