Post office mayhem is underway and the US Postal Service is reminding people about shipping deadlines. Officials say you’ll need to send off your goods three days earlier than last year to meet the service’s ground shipping delivery cutoff date of December 17. The date for Priority Mail is December 19 but you can ship via Priority Mail Express service as late as the 23rd. What was the best gift you ever got via mail?
