Christmas is just around the corner and if you are like me at all, you have waited last minute to mail your packages. Yes I know, not smart and I should know better by now, but another year of my procrastination has taken place.

Luckily, I don't have packages going very far like across the country or to another country, I am just sending things one state away, which helps. BUT, if you are sending things that need a little time to get to where they are going, this list is exactly what you need.

Now, you have already most likely missed the regular US Postal Service cut-off date for sending packages the basic and cheapest way, but there is still time to use their services.

I would check the websites for your local agencies to make sure you are still going to make those deadlines, but here is a list of what I could find. There is a full article HERE as well.
