    We check it about once per week, we live in an apartment complex and the mail box is totally out of the way otherwise I’m sure we would check it more.

    Never. DH checks it and lets me know if something important comes. 🙂

    I check mine 1-3 times a week, more if I’m expecting something. I also am in an apartment complex and it’s out of my way to stop and check the mail. Since most of the time it all goes straight into the recycling bin (junk mail) I don’t feel very motivated to check every day.

    When my mail box was right in my apartment building I checked it almost every day.  But I don’t get a lot of mail.  My mailbox now isn’t even that far away, but the only reason to go over there is to check the mail.  And since it is mostly junk I don’t check it very often.  I try to be better about it when I am expecting something or bills are coming.

    When we lived in an apartment and had to walk down to the mail area (grouped mailboxes), we checked it about 2-3 times a week, or if we knew something was coming in.  After we moved into our single family home, we check it daily (individual mailbox).

    @MoodyFoodie:  I’m compulsive about it. If i don’t check as soon as i get home it drives me nuts.

    The mailbox is right next to our door so I check it everyday. Unfortunately most of it is junk. I wish I could stop all of the junk!! I do love getting personal mail!

    My mailbox is at the end of my street and I would say I check it 3x a week or so. Most bills etc come via email and we put a sticker on our mailbox so we don’t receive any junk mail (best idea ever!) so we don’t really get that much mail.

    I put daily, but that’s kind of a lie. FI checks it daily.

    I took the mailbox key off my keychain years ago ‘to lighten the load’ (??) and never put it back on. It’s now lost, along with my key to be able to walk down to the parking garage from G. It’s a hassle.

    I check it daily. I really shouldn’t though because at least 70% of the time I’m disappointed by either no mail or just junk mail. I’m not sure what I’m expecting to be in our mailbox, but whatever it is, I keep checking!

    I never check it, but that is because we were only given 1 key and DH has it.  He checks it every day though (one of these days we are going to copy the key so I can too).  

    Before moving in with DH my mailbox was a regular mailbox in a row of other mailboxes, and I had some questionable neighbors.  That one I made sure I checked every single day.  Before that I lived in an apartment with the mailboxes not very convienient, so I checked that one just a couple time a week.

    I check everyday but Sunday! I’m kind of a mail nut. As soon as I get bills they are paid and in the mailbox for the next day.
