Mothers Day Dont forget your Mum

We are on the count-down to Mothers Day! Yep thats right, less than 2 weeks to go. Are you all organised? You didnt forget did you?

Ive been looking through results from the latest survey by Australia Post and I can tell you some poor mummies will have an empty letter box this Mothers Day.

Of the 1,000 plus Australians surveyed, over 80% said that Mum was the most appreciated person in their family. However if you look at the graphics below youll see that not every Mum will be remembered this year…

Mothers Day Statistics

We all know how busy we all are “ juggling work, study, school pickups and drop-offs, appointments, shopping “ and the list goes on… I know I always struggle to find the time to make it to the post office before it closes at the end of the day; or if Im in & out of the house all day Im guaranteed to miss that eagerly awaited parcel delivery.. No one wants to miss their gift arriving before the Mothers Day weekend..

Thats where the new Australia Post Parcel Lockers come in! This free service, available in over 200 locations, can help by giving you access to your awaiting gift any time of the day or night “ 24/7! No more rushing to the post office before it closes. Collect your goodies at your convenience day or night.

So now you can shop online and know that you can collect your purchase when youre busy schedule allows you to pop into your nearest Parcel Locker location and pick up your parcel.

Pop over to the Australia Post website and watch the short YouTube video which explains how to register for your free Parcel Locker access. Here


Here are some great Tips for being organised this Mothers Day:

  • Shop early “ look around for ideas so you dont leave it to the last minute. Nothing worse than that last minute flustered shopping outing
  • Ask your Mum what she would really like or really needs. She might surprise you with a few helpful hints
  • Set a reminder in your phone calendar a few weeks out from Mothers Day “ a gentle reminder to get organised- especially if you need to factor in online delivery time


Have you signed up to the Australia Post Parcel Lockers service?

I know this service would be so handy for all those handmade businesses eagerly awaiting those all important fabric and craft supply packages each week! Dont worry about missing the postie again.
