Take a Vacation and Hold The Mail

“I can’t get to the post office during their hours to pick up my mail.” Becky explained that their mail had been held at the post office while her family vacationed. Since their return a few days earlier, no one had been able to go to the post office to pick up the accumulated mail.

Here’s the secret to getting the mail delivered to your home! Go to the United States Postal Service website. You’ll find the link to Hold Mail Service.  Supply your zip code and complete the questions asked. If you are in an area that has the service, you can have the post office hold your mail and deliver it right to your mailbox on the day of your return.

There are some requirements such as a minimum length of days and amount of mail that may exceed your mailbox size.

So go have some fun! Take a vacation and save yourself a trip to the post office!

What other vacation preparation tips do you have to share? We can’t wait to hear them!
