Monday was the busiest day for mail and package carriers.

The United States Postal Service expected to handle 30 million items on Monday alone, and 15 billion items this season.

We talked to one local carrier who says packages have doubled, and while they're working to make sure you get yours on time, the mail just keeps on pouring in.

"It's not too bad, but it's definitely busy," said Cale Purdy.

If you haven't shipped your presents yet, you still have time to get them to your loved ones by Christmas. You'll have to use priority mail or priority mail express.
