Tip 86: Stopping your postal mail

Planning to be gone on a lengthy trip? If you are in the US, you can consider contacting the US Postal Service to hold your mail while you are gone. It is as easy as visiting usps.com and selecting “Hold Mail”. This avoids an overflow of mail and doesn’t require assistance from a neighbor or friend. You control which days your mail is held and the date of the bulk delivery to your home once you return. It’s all available online!
