Several months ago I ran across an idea in Pinterest that I thought was tremendous. A number of people were setting out boxes of snacks out by their front door for their letter carriers and delivery people to help themselves from during their rounds. It also included a sign thanking the delivery person for their service. Well, I love to feed people, and particularly surprise them with food. So this idea seemed right up my alley. We put together a basket of packaged snacks and set it outside with a colorful sign. I love this idea! I love making people feel surprised. Who doesn’t love an unexpected snack! We have also put together a year-round sign which we use when weather permits. I don’t know who is enjoying this more, me or them.
Also I read a hint in the “Hints from Heloise” column a few weeks ago, where a reader breaks down the boxes she gets in her deliveries and offers them for free in social media platforms and saves the packing material for charity resale shop owners to enable them to save the money they would otherwise have to spend. Reduce, Reuse & Recycle!
Happy Earth Day,
