How often do you check your mail?

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Snail mail that is? I look in my mailbox everyday after work, but one friend told me since her mail box is across the street, she does't check it but every few days???? I can't imagine! Do you guys get yours everyday?

Ours get's pushed through the letterbox which is in the actual door, so as soon as i open my front door when i get home from work, any mail is on the floor waiting for me to pick up

About four or five times a week. If I know I'm getting a Netflicks shipment I'll go and get it.

Most of my bills are e-mailed to me, so I don't really need to worry about missing anything.

Every day, we drive past our mailbox, I miss having one in the door!

Either B or I will check it once a day. Personally I don't like to have mail sitting in an openable mailbox.

It depends on how often I go out. When I was working I would check everyday on my way home.

Now that I'm not working and because of my fainting episodes, I check it once a week if I am not going out that week. More often if I have to go out.

I hardly ever check my mail box. If it wasnt for my housemate checking it every day my bills ill prolly sit there for a week lol. I dont get much mail anyway so i think when he moves ill be fine checking it twice a week. Once when we take the rubbish out and once when when go do the shopping.

Our letterbox is at the end of the driveway, gets checked every day.

We have a PO Box (safer then the house mailbox re: identity theft). DH usually checks it once a day, but sometimes we may skip a day before we go to the post office.


BTW your friend is a prime target for ID thieves if she is not checking her box - she may already be a victim.

If it's "across the street", chances are it's one of those large public boxes with several smaller locked boxes for each home.

For me mine is a locked box at the end of hallway on the floor I live on. I really need to check it at least 2 times a week though, otherwise when I get a magazine and with all of that unwanted junk mail (Flyers), the mail gets pretty crammed in and is hard to get out.

I try to check it every day, but I do skip every once in awhile

I get mine maybe once every week to two weeks. I blame that one on the bf. He is the only one with the mailbox key (dont know why he hasnt got me a copy, or let me go get a copy yet) hence he is in charge of getting the mail.... I have to get on him about it all the time. Luckily I know when all of my bills are due and I pay them all online (except for one). I use to check the mailbox everyday... till I didnt have access to the key.

Everyday- it used to be at the end of our driveway, but now we have to pick it up at the post office until we can move back to our place.

Mine is at the end of the driveway and I have quiet a little walk, so I don't check it every day, usually every other day!!
post #16 of 38
I check mine ...almost every day. Not quite every day, I forget sometimes. But our mail is in a locked mailbox in the entryway because we live in an apartment, so it's no big deal if we miss a day or two.

Daily during the week in order to I have the facility to access to internet from Work...

On weekends should to wait until next monday......

CesĀ“t la vie!

Every night when I come in from work, unless Rob is home first and has already checked. We might miss a day here and there when we're on vacation, but not deliberately.

Everyday with the occasional miss on Saturday. We live in a complex and have a locked box outside. Scott lost his mailbox key, so its up to me...he REALLY needs to get it replaced...he's the one who receives the most packages.

Same here. Some of the mail will be sitting just inside the door where it falls, and some of it will be scattered around the house and under the furniture where Riley swats it.

We don't get ours everyday. We only get it on the days we are out. Our mail box is about 2 miles from our house.

DH usually picks it up on his way home. Our mailbox is one of the drive up kinds with lots of boxes in one big unit. Sometimes we forget to pick it up on Saturdays, so we'll get it on Sunday or Monday.

Every other day

I check mine every day. Its just at the end of the driveway so its not a big deal to walk out and get it. I just wait for them to come and put the red flag up so I know its there.

Those of you who do not have locking mail boxes are at high risk of ID theft! Especially if the red flag is up. You don't know WHO is watching and who stops by to "check" your mail.

I'd go to this website and check out some of the things - you may be very surprised!

Our mail can be delivered anywhere from late morning to mid afternoon so I check for it several times/day if I am home. However until Neil gets the new mailpost reconstructed we put out the mailbox on top of a pail mid morning and remove it once the mail is delivered.

I dont think the landlord will go for me changing the lock.... Its a unit of boxes. The landlord only gave us one key. Awww heck, Ill just steal the key off of his chain, get a copy, and be done with it. At our old apartment I had a copy made for our mailbox and my copy didnt work Thats why he doesnt want me to waste my time!

I miss my mail carrier. He retired a year ago. He was so nice and knew it was difficult for me to get my mail so he would deliver my mail to my door for me. Now we don't have a regular carrier and it's basically a fill in route or something.
