More Mail Help
In response to Friday’s tip—having your neighbor get your mail—a number of readers shared some great advice—which I happen to follow myself. As they noted, another approach to managing your mail while you’re away is to have the post office hold your mail. You can request a mail hold online here.
Once you return home, you have the option of either having a USPS rep deliver your accumulated mail or picking it up at the post office. USPS will hold your mail for up to 30 days. I use it all the time, as it’s very convenient—and free!
You can stop most newspapers online as well, so be sure to look into that before you go.
