Hold Your Mail

Contact your local post office to hold your mail while you're away on vacation. The post office will keep your mail for as long as you tell them. Even if you decide to extend your vacation, you can always call or make an online change to your pick-up. Although receiving 'snail mail' is less frequent these days, it's nice to know that the little you do get is in safe hands while you're away.
