The majority of the people who live on my street have lived here a very long time. Most are the original owners (35+ tears). There are 7 of us who are very close. Throughout the year and especially during the holidays, if we see a package delivered to one of the houses, we will call/text the homeowner to see if they want us to grab their packages for them and hold them until they are home.
I just did this today for the lady across the street from me.
Do you and your neighbors look out for each other like this? We also let them know when we are out of town and if someone will be house sitting or coming by to check on the house. We also call for suspicious activities around their homes and I have keys to at least 3 of their homes. A couple have keys to ours.
