Halloween has just ended, and the holiday season will be here before we know it. When it comes to handling another hectic United Postal Service shipping window, doing all the planning that you can ahead of time pays off.
Ahead of the 2023 holiday season, USPS released its holiday shipping deadlines to ensure that your packages reach loved ones by Dec. 25. Simply put, the sooner you send holiday cards and gifts, the better. You can order online supplies, print shipping labels, and schedule a free package pickup on the USPS’ website, or check your local USPS store’s holiday schedule and hours here.
