I recently experienced a couple of lost deliveries which was extremely disappointing and frustrating not to mention lots of time wasted! I had to be on the phone with the company I purchased from, delivery service as well as my credit card company. All together I spent over 5 hours of my time being placed on hold, switched to different departments and finally was able to dispute the charges. Not only did it take a big chunk of my time, but over a weeks course to resolve everything!
With that horrible experience, I am now going to keep a better tab on my expected deliveries.
However, the text messages do not alert me from which company or to what address I have my items shipped so a visual always works best for me.
Instead of using this as a weekly agenda, I will write the calendar month and jot down my expected deliveries.
Living in a strict HOA community, we're unable to plant anything out in front or put anything like a bench. Instead, we placed a planter and it's a spot where delivery people usually leave our packages. That way, from the street it won't be obvious that we have a package if we're not home yet.
This tip is great for those who live in an apartment, condo, live in a strict HOA community, or you simply need an easy way to hide packages.
