One thing I should mention, that others sort of alluded to. In the US, a 
notary is very inexpensive. For example, often if you have an account at a 
bank, you can have documents notarized there for free (as I can at my bank) 
or for a few dollars.

That said, I can only think of about 1 thing I've ever needed to have 
notarized in my life, so it's not like I'm "fond" of notaries--but they 
seem to fulfill their intended purpose.
