    I was wondering if there is a company like a post office that I can have my mail (packages) sent when ordered that adds a plain brown wrapper to it and forward my package to my house?  There are too many unsupportive adults in my house and life is hard enough.  I try to find companies that discrete ship  but I always find something from a site that doesn’t,  so I don’t make that purchase. Thanks in advance. SHARON

      I have a good woman friend who graciously accepts and holds all of my packages. Since we share similar fashion taste, she enjoys the opportunity to open and try-on whatever I have purchased. Her endorsement of what I picked out is most graciously received.

      Many online retailers have a drop box system where goods can be delivered to. This could be a rack of locked boxes at a supermarket, or a local shop. I used to lookout for these when ordering. Luckily I no longer have to as it’s just me and my wife at home these days.

      Hi Sharon

      UPS stores have mail boxes and they will keep your mail and packages without returning them to sender until you are able to pick them up .They have many stores mostly in shopping plazas or strip malls.This may be a option for you to receive things drcreatley Good luck

      During some of my time living in a certain neighborhood in Florida, I found the need to get myself a post office box after it became obvious that I had some mail disappearing out of my mail box. Sure, some of the larger items I would order (unrelated to CD-ing) would be placed next to my front door under the watchful eyes of 2 to 3 of my cameras I had installed there, but I was unable to place any of them watching my mailbox to protect smaller packages…like those containing a new swimsuit for example.

      Sure it required another bill to be responsible for and an extra key to carry on my keychain, but I had the surety of security and since that P.O. Box was at the main sorting hub in that area, I was able to receive my packages about a day sooner than normal.

      And you don’t even need to pay for one of the big boxes. If your box is too small, they will still give you your package either by placing a one-time-use key to one of the big boxes into your box, or a note to pick it up from the main desk.

      Hi Sharon.
      Here in Ontario, Canada post has a system called Flex Delivery, which assigns you a box number at a post office of your choice, at no charge to you, which allows you complete privacy for things you don’t want coming to the house.
      I use mine for any presents I order for my wife, as she receives the mail/packages while I am at work, and she is just a tad nosy, giggles
      Not sure if Michigan has something like this, but it’s an idea?
      Hugs, Regi👩💕

      Sharon,

      My wife and I live with her parents currently, and will probably being so for at least the next 6 to 12 months. Though I have always enjoyed my wife’s love and acceptance, her parents would not be supportive. Therefore, I am careful and discrete with my clothing preference. Given that my size in clothing is often not available in store, I often order my clothes. To avoid my inlaws from inadvertently seeing a labeled box, I have most of my orders shipped to store.

      Maybe not exactly what you are looking for…but I just received my order from EnFemmeStyles.com. Very discreet..the return label in upper left reads “Ty Style”. I have a TS friend who has a shop in town, and she lets me send my packages to her business, under my CD name. I pick them up when they come in. I always discard the shipping label on the box prior to getting home.

      And it shows up similarly on the credit card bill, if that is a factor.

      Here in the UK (I know this won’t help you😢) many online stores give you an option to have your package shipped to a local convenience store or if you have an Amazon Prime account you can get your package shipped to your local Post Office this option has been a real godsend for me over the the last few years.
      I just wondered if you had something similar in the US?

        Thank you. I know some places will offer that service. Seems like the things I want don’t. I have had good luck on ebay but still a crap shoot at best. I figured it out for me with a private mail box.

      Hi Sharon…

      Lately I have had my items delivered to the house I live in (bsmt apartment). This is not ideal as some envelopes have been occasionally opened. Never anything missing… just ‘Prying’ eyes I’m tinking. Also the risk of the package being stolen is very real.

      Have on occasion used the local post office as a delivery address. No ‘private box’, but the delivered package sits in a secured storage room until pick up… have never had an issue…

      Gen ❤

      I order lots of things from Amazon Prime and the packaging just says Amazon.

        I buy most things from amazon. Like Diane said they will deliver to a locker for you. They have lockers all over, I use one at a convenience store by my home. I walk up scan my phone a door opens on the machine and I’m done. Really easy and secure, no worries about some one at home intercepting my stuff. That’s about as discreet as can be.

      If you have your own Amazon account, depending on the area you live in, there are Amazon Lockers where your items can be shipped.  You get a code when the item has arrived and you have 3 days to go pick it up. There are, literally, little lockers and the code you enter (or scan) will open the locker with your package in it. Grab your package, close the door and go.  Super convenient.

      There are other stores that accept Amazon deliveries where you can pick them up. I believe they’re called Amazon Hub Counters.  Same concept, except you walk up to a counter, show them the e-mail that says something was delivered (that doesn’t reveal what is being delivered), they scan the code and give you your boxes.  You do have to show ID, but no one knows what’s in your packages.

      As Donna said, MyUPS can hold packages for you to pick up, but not everything is delivered by UPS, so that could be tricky.

      A PO box will typically cost you a monthly fee.

      Good luck!

      *kisses* tara 🙂

      dealt with many companies and some do have a check box to ship in a plain brown box. Others don’t. Know like on Amazon believe some sellers offer the option. Oh could always get you a postal box and go get your mail that way. Also know if dealing with fedex or UPS could have it held and pick up at closest store of office.

      Hope this helped Sharon

        Thanks, I probably will just get a PO Box.  Just didn’t know if someone provided that sort of service.  My luck the package comes in a brown wrap. But the mailing list send bras, womans clothes catalogs forever. Hard to get off a list once it starts.  Thanks again.

          You welcome Sharon

           

          usually when a business sends a email there a option to get off some or all of their service like catalogs and emails. make sure when do make sure click all the boxes to be taken off.
