If you proudly filled your passport with stamps during your Paris study abroad (read: skipped class and hopped around Europe for a year), you already know that for $82, you can add more pages to your US passport.
But as of Dec. 31, 2015, you'll be SOL. And that's not the French word for ground. It's an acronym for a swear.
At the end of this year, the State Department is doing away with adding pages to US passports entirely. So if you fill your pages up, you'll have to get a new passport altogether. After Dec. 31, all passports issued by the State Department will have 52 pages (called the jumbo book) that last for 10 years, or until there's no space for stamps. After that, frequent travelers simply have to apply for a new passport.
