Who doesn’t have the problem of their mailbox is full?
Maybe like me they only check it every few days or once a week, yes I tend to get busy and forget to run to my mailbox and when I do it’s stuffed full, typically with junk mail and a couple of things that are kind of important that I should have seen a day or 2 sooner.
There are solutions out there that can make this problem one less thing to worry about and cut the clutter in your house as well.
They are called virtual mailboxes and with them, you see your mail through a link in your email when you choose to and only get it in your regular mailbox when you absolutely have to and when you choose to.
It can be done in a few simple steps and be done relatively inexpensively depending on the amount of mail you get and the services you choose.
