Remember to Hold Your Mail

August 1st · 1 Comment

Going on vacation? One of the many chores you have to remember is to hold your mail. In year’s past, this meant a trip to the post office and a wait in their ubiquitous line. Fortunately, the post office has entered the 21st century and now offers the ability to hold your mail online. You can set it up for same day stoppage if you enter it by 2AM Central (an odd time zone, but whatever) and the service is limited to certain zip codes but it’s worth a shot. No fee either, completely free!

Spend all this new free time planning for your vacation!

    I used to use the online form to hold mail, but my mailman told me sometimes their system doesn’t work well and he doesn’t actually receive the hold request. He gave me a stack of yellow “Authorization to Hold Mail” cards (PS Form 8076). There’s no stamp required to use it. I prefer the online method, but this yellow card is pretty easy to use, too.
