Conserve passport space by skipping the US entry stamp
Now, three years prior to its expiration date and just after getting two pages of Indian visas, there are precious few slots left in my road worn passport, just a few more possibilities before I'm due back at the post office. I certainly can't get any more full page sticker visas, and if I travel conservatively I figure I've only got about six months left.
One way to conserve space though is at immigration on the way back into the United States. For American citizens it's not a requirement to have each and every inbound border crossing stamped. As a result, page-stingy travelers like myself can politely ask the homeland security officer to not leave any ink. Those few remaining spots can mean one or two last trips squeezed out before the dreaded trip back
