The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is warning consumers not to wait until the last minute to ship their gifts this holiday season.
The USPS has released a list of deadlines for those looking to send packages via the mail service, with a goal of delivering them before Dec. 25.
Those using the USPS retail ground service or first-class mail service should send out those items by Dec. 17 at the very latest.
Those using the priority mail service have until Dec. 19, while individuals paying for the priority mail express service have even more leeway, with a Dec. 23 deadline.
