It’s small in comparison to the whole house, but a mailbox is a nice feature to owning a home. In all my past apartments I have always had to go to a central location and have my mail key on hand in order to pick up my mail. Now I just put my car in park on my way up the drive from work, hop out, grab the mail out of the box (no key required) and continue on my way into the house. It’s a great perk!
Also for those that send me snail mail, their notes get to me faster because it’s easy and on my way, so I get my mail every day, opposed to every 4-5 days…. 🙂
