Moving is not an easy task. There are boxes to pack, new items to purchase, furniture to load and unload, and about a million other tasks to handle. One of the most important "to do" tasks? Changing your mailing address. In the past, you'd have to stop by your local United States Postal Service (USPS) office to fetch a change of address form, which likely entailed lines and long wait times. But, fortunately, times have changed. The USPS now offers an online version of the Change-of-Address form, and, while this service isn't completely free, it’s certainly not going to be the priciest part of your move. Besides, when there are so many other stressors to worry about, convenience is key.
