    I have to postpone my plans...

    I have to postpone my plans because I have just lost my job.

    Is "postpone my plans" correctly used?

    Thanks.

    It's OK. What you have almost certainly postponed is some things that you have planned, not the plans themselves, but your words are natural enough.

    Yes. I agree that it's fine. People often say they're postponing plans.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
