It may, in fact, be the case that GCDN arranged for delivery on days when typical advertising flyers were not scheduled to be avalanching. But here's the issue with that: Most of us no longer check our mailboxes every day. What's the point?? Particularly for those of us who receive all of our important correspondence, bills, bank statements, etc. electronically, plus we have the security of a USPS-issued clusterbox, checking the mail is something we often do only on trash or recycling days, and only for disposal purposes.
|This postal worker hit the nail on the head with this response. If not for eBay and Amazon, I would not traipse to my mailbox at all. I would attempt to close it and not accept hard-copy mail delivery, period (which would be the Final Solution for the junk mail that I haven't been able to control even though I paid for a service to have it stopped). Perhaps when Google gets its delivery drones airborne, we'll be able to take that logical next step and be done with residential USPS delivery once and for all. |

|Perspective such as this is intended to wake up our local politicians, who arguably are not doing their jobs in getting our practical issues resolved. The Five Corners fiasco has been lingering for far too many years now. Screengrabbed from this April 2014 post.|
And incidentally, for those of you who engage in only periodic USPS mailbox excavation mostly for disposal purposes, I found a really neat product that might be of assistance to you.
|It's the Barnes and Noble felt tote. It's a very heavy but small bag. And oh, the style is divine. Very modern, just the way I like it. Comes in three colors. I like the gray. They are available at the Clear Lake (Baybrook) Barnes and Noble on Bay Area Blvd. (at least they were as of August 29, 2014).|
