Drop It In the Box

Date Sun, July 1 2012

Mom just installed a new mailbox. She has the envelope-box style one that came with the house, but I guess it wasn’t attached to the side very well. We had a few windy storms this spring, and that led her to chasing the mailbox that had flown off the exterior of the house. Now, I prefer this style of mailbox to the style that mount from the ground, but I understand the security of wanting a mailbox that stays put, especially if you live in a windy area. The wall-mount style might be small, but I wouldn’t want that blowing into my car or, even worse, a person!

Function aside, I think that mailboxes are a great way to add curb appeal.  Luxury mailboxes, some lights along the front walkway, shutters and custom numbers are all relatively easy to install and definitely help you keep up with the Joneses. Or, perhaps I’ve just been watching too much HGTV lately. I am a fan of the channel. I love all those hunting-for-homes shows, as well as those about flipping your house and customizing on a budget. I’d really be a great home owner, don’t you think?

You wouldn’t find any ugly mailboxes at my place ;)
