More about mailboxes: These days, almost nothing important comes via USPS so it's not necessary to check the mailbox unless you are actually expecting something. With electronic banking, auto bill pay, etc., most people don't even need a mailbox. Mostly what USPS delivers is junk mail, which you subsequently have to shred and/or toss in the trash. If you don't want the expense of a PO Box, you can just eliminate having mail sent to you for any of your accounts by going paperless. Make it all e-delivery.
When in public (shopping, strolling, jogging, at the airport, etc.):
About home security systemsHome security systems (as they are called) seem like a good idea. The typical owner pays about $400 a year to let the police know there's been a $400 robbery. Hmm. Do you see what's wrong with this picture?
That isn't how it has to be. You can set up an alarm system that notifies you when a break-in is in progress. This is called an "unmonitored" system because you're not paying the monitoring fee. And because the system calls you, security actually improves.
The false alarm rate with monitored systems is so high that police treat these calls as low priority. You can set up your own system to call you and to call an inexpensive monitoring service. For example, Alarm Relay charges less than $10 a month.
You can find security systems, easily enough. You could go out and buy one, or you could locate a local security system installer who will make a recommendation and get you one probably a little cheaper. Plan on spending about $300 to $400 to get the system and get it properly installed. Or, you can save money by installing one of the new wireless ones, yourself.
Video monitoring is also very cool. In our last issue, we featured some security cameras. We have since added to our line of security products, including such items as DVRs disguised as books and DVRs inside functioning computer speakers.
