With this whole dashing around the world thing comes planning out the logistics of some very mundane errands, including, but not limited to, banking, selling unnecessary things, and forwarding mail. The first two will be pretty easy; the third is a bit more complicated. The difficulties arise because I have mail sent to my school address as well as some to my parents’ address, but I don’t want my mail forwarded all the way to South Korea (which is a difficulty in itself since I don’t even know my future address, yet).
But now there’s a way to forward my mail to me online, making my mail accessible anywhere in the world. With Earth Class Mail, I can forward all my mail to a centralized mail-sorting center where they scan my mail and let me decide whether to scan its contents or to recycle it. I still don’t completely understand the process, but it does seem like a competent solution to getting important mail in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner. I think the way it would work for me is that I’d just forward my mail from school to my home address and on to my Earth Class Mail P.O. box. The service starts at $9.95 a month, but that seems like a small price to pay for someone who might be without a permanent address for a while.
Does anyone have any experience with this service?
