How and When to Use the 📮 Postbox Emoji

  • A postbox is a medium of collection for posts and letters. You could use 📮 while suggesting a ‘collection’ or the act of collecting in general contexts. For example, “Collect memories not things 📮” or “I love collecting random stuff that people give me 📮”.
  • However, an uncleared postbox may also suggest hoarding or a hoarder. If you’re telling someone that you’re a hoarder or if you’re posting a picture, the caption for which resonates with hoarding, then too, you can use 📮.
  • Examples for the previous use-case: “I’m a big-time hoarder, btw 📮. Don’t be surprised when you see my room” or “Here’s a piece of my hoarding collection 📮“.
  • Use 📮 while referring to all aspects of a postal system such as postage, posting, postal services, post offices, etc.
  • Ensure to use 📮 even while phrasing metaphorical captions out of the postal umbrella! For example, “Be like a postage stamp 📮. Stick to one thing until you get there”.
