A Storage Solution: Shipping Packages Without Leaving Your Home!

So you have figured a way to have your mail carrier come to your door and get your prepaid mail packages.  PERFECT!!!   Click here and check out our past article entitled: How To Schedule A Free USPS Package Pickup to show you how it’s done.   What could possibly go wrong?  Is it ok to you leave your packages unattended all day on your porch? 

Keep your packages safe from theft and the elements. With an outdoor delivery and storage dropbox your postal worker can pick up your orders with ease.   An ideal solution for shipping out  your orders without leaving your home. 

Leaving the packages outside on my porch for pick-up can be a problem.

Rain! Theft! Also, living in New England dare I say the word?  SNOW!

If I leave my packages out on my porch a whole new set of issues arise.  I took to Amazon for a solution.  

MY SOLUTION: A Great New Storage Cube

The Ketler 55 Gallon Outdoor Rattan Storage cube at $69.00. Funny I did not even skip a beat to pay the $70 for the piece of mind that may package will now be safe.  I ordered the item online the same day.


Two days later my shipment arrives. The shape of the box screams assembly required.  For anyone that knows me ( yes I’m talking to you Jim) knows I am not skilled in assembly.  However, I was determined to put this together myself.


I got out my sticky notes and labeled every part.  The sides go on easy with some strong clicks.  The hinges ( which I put in backward- again thanks for the help Jim) goes on with just a few screws.


The Review


I simply love it. It looks fantastic on my porch.  It’s pouring out today and as you can see from the photos, my cube is weather tight.  Not a drop inside that large 55-gallon cube.

I’m thrilled I’ve made a sale out of my Etsy shop this morning so once I package it all up all I need to do is put it into my new cube outside my door and enter in my request for a post office pick-up.  Problem Solved!   No need to stop at the post office today.
