Travel Tip: Hold Your Mail During Long-Term Trips
Whenever you travel for a long period of time there’s a lot of pre-departure “to-do’s” to ensure that you can leave home with some peace of mind. One of them should be stopping your mail. Aside from not having to worry about mail piling up in your mail box, you can protect your privacy and/or not worry about finding someone to visit your house everyday to get the mail.
Holding your mail is easy. Visit the US Postal Service Hold Mail Request Page and fill out the online form. Enter the start and end dates and submit. It’s that easy.
Returning home from vacation is never home, but a giant pile of mail to sort through will give you something to look forward to. Is there a check from Grandma in there? A gift you ordered online? Coupons for your favorite store? A love letter? Sorting through mail is fun. It’s like the lottery, you never know what you might find!
And remember, for longer term travel, you may want to look into self storage for larger, personal items.
