I recently moved (yes! REALTORS® move, too!), and I made a fun discovery. While I was working on changing my mailing address with the United States Postal Service (USPS), I found out they have a service called Informed Delivery.

Now, you may already be one of the cool kids and know about this, but just in case this is new to you, too, here’s what it is: USPS Informed Delivery is a daily email from the post office letting you know what mail to expect that day.

According to the Informed Delivery website, you can “digitally preview your mail and manage your packages scheduled to arrive soon! Informed Delivery allows you to view greyscale images of the exterior, address side of letter-sized mailpieces and track packages in one convenient location.”

It’s more than just a way to see what’s arriving today, though. It’s also a one-stop portal where you can track packages, leave delivery instructions if you won’t be home to accept a package, schedule a re-delivery if you missed a package that needed your signature, and more.

It’s a pretty cool way to keep track of your mail.

Oh, and it’s FREE.

You can sign up, here!
