Sign-Up For USPS Informed Delivery. It's FREE!

This is NOT SPONSORED. Have you heard about the United States Postal Service (USPS) Informed Delivery? I found out about it, while on Twitter. It's a FREE service that will let you know what mail (letters & packages) to expect for the day (ex. if you will receive 3 letters, 6 letters, 2 packages etc). USPS will show you scanned EXTERIOR images of letter-sized mail/packages (ex. bill from Macy's, package from your Mom, Chase Bank statement). Let me re-emphasize, it will NOT show you what's inside the letter/package, just who it is from. Also, if you don't receive the letter/package you can click on the scanned image and report it missing. I just signed up for this service and I love it. It lets me know what to expect in my mailbox each and every day. Now and again, I will get mail that doesn't belong to me or my neighbor's mail. Every once in awhile they will get my mail. I often wonder, if there is any mail that hasn't been returned to me O_o. It's a scary thought to think if someone is keeping something of yours or throwing it away. So that's why I wanted to tell you about this. It will give you peace of mind and what's expected in your mailbox. Let me show you the steps.
1. First, Go to USPS Informed Delivery to see if it is available in your area.
2. Sign Up For Free. It's FREE!
3. Verify Your Address 
4. Choose a Username and Password
5. Select Security Questions
6. Add Your Contact Information
7. The final thing you will have to do is answer about 5-7 questions only YOU would know (former places you lived, last 4 digits of your social, etc)! USPS will then verify it's you. If they can't get verification that way, they will ask you to scan something and bring it to your local post office (where they can verify you). I did everything online and it only took about 3 days for me to start receiving scanned images of my mail. You can view your mail by downloading the Informed Delivery App on your cell phone, or via computer by going to USPS > Track & Managed > Informed Delivery > and Signing In. I personally prefer the app, but they give you two great options. I wanted to let my readers know :)
