We're thinking of replacing the old front door, which I think is the
main heat loss area in the house now, with a new "modern" one. Among
other things, I'm considering switching from a letter slot in the door
to a box on the wall near the door. It would be mounted on a brick
wall in the entry/passage (so sheltered from rain but subject to
wind). I think this would have advantages for security and reduced
Any comments on this? Has anyone here switched from a letter slot to
a box and found it a great improvement or problematic?
You might be surprised just how much crap they do deliver. The junk through
our letterbox dropped dramatically when we opted out. Of course a lot
depends on where you live but RM do deliver a lot of junk mail/flyers.
Indeed they do - and today I was handed my post and flyer bundle/load of
crap. But the real problem is that whatever we do about pulling our
RM-delivered stuff out so the flap can close, a very short time after
some other person delivers something else.

Certainly does, RM are the only delivers of junk mail/flyers to us. We
don't get any free "news" papers, property papers, local business flyers
etc. Wouldn't mind a free news paper, it would be something to light the
woodburner with, the glossy flyer type stuff doesn't burn very well.

What are they? Not had those, as I said the only flyers/junk/"The

(*)Not strictly true, we get flyers for village events like the fireworks
display or late night opening for the Christmas Craft Fair, etc
Plastic bags, about 20 or 30 litres, I think, labelled "put your used
clothing in this bag outside and we'll collect it on Tuesday to help
orphans"; the fine print usually says they'll sell the clothing and
send 2% of the proceeds to orphans somewhere.
