The season of giving is just around the corner, so you can expect to see your mail person a lot this holiday season.

Get this, more than 15 billion packages will be delivered, but naturally some people may feel a little uneasy shipping packages out. Especially with all of those porch pirates out there.

Protecting Your Packages this Holiday Season, Here's What You Should Do

The US Postal Service does have a few helpful tips you can use to protect your packages:

  1. Always avoid sending cash by mail. Money orders are safer than cash and can be canceled if stolen.
  2. Consider an alternate shipping address. Send your packages to your work or a place you know people don’t go to often.
  3. Plan ahead. Ship using ‘Hold For Pickup.’ You can choose to pick your package up at the post office to avoid a theft.
