Helpful hints and interesting insights from our intrepid mail carriers here.
My favorite is number 7: Paychecks, personal cards, letters—anything that looks like good news—I put those on top. Utility and credit card bills? They go under everything else.
With all the letters I’ve gotten lately, I noticed my mail carrier put them on top. It’s so nice to see them first thing when I open the mailbox! It’s also nice to be shielded, even if momentarily, from the less pleasant pieces of snail mail. Thanks Mr. Mailman.
