Busiest mailing day

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

(WFLX) - Monday is the final deadline if you want your greeting or gift to arrive on time to your friends, family or loved ones.

Between now and Christmas Eve, the U.S. Postal Service is estimating to deliver around 15 million cards letters and packages. They also think, close to 97 million costumers will walk threw the doors.

So keep in mind, if you are shipping out your gifts Monday, it's one of the busiest days at post offices all of the world.

The good news is they have been preparing for the holiday rush.

Extra staff will be added, and they have options posted on there Web site to print your shipping labels ahead of time and even schedule a carrier to pick up your package free of charge.

Worst case scenario, if you cant arrange to ship something Monday, you will have to use priority mail on Tuesday and express mail on Wednesday which costs extra.
