I remember when I first moved out I enjoyed checking my mail each and every day. I had a minor sense of excitement of what may be coming in each day. That excitement seems to dwindle as I realize it is always bills that are coming in.

You have to feel the same way, right? Every once in a while you may get a card. I mean if your birthday is coming up. Maybe someone is nice and just sending you something just because.

For the most part though you only seem to get junk mail and bills. That is no fun.

So how can you know when you really need to check the mail?

I know this seems like a first world problem. I don't want to walk to the front door if I don't have to. Some people have a further walk and who has time for that if there is nothing good in the box waiting for you?

It is a free service and one that I think is pretty cool. It does save me time. I mean I might check my mail once or twice a week now. So maybe it doesn't save A LOT of time but it is nice.
