If you want your Christmas packages to arrive on time, you don't have much time left to get them in the mail.
In order to ship them with the cheapest postage, your deadline is tomorrow, December 15th.
You have a little later, however, if you are willing to pay more. Next Thurday, December 20th, is the last day you can send first class or priority mail to have your items arrive by December 25th.
December 22nd is the deadline for express mail.
You can avoid lines by using automated postal centers that are open 24 hours a day.
