You can use technology to help as well.
A smart camera doorbell like SkyBell, Ring or Nest Hello that notifies you a package has arrived.
You can use FedEx, UPS, DHL, USPS or Amazon to track and get alerts to the status of your package.
Amazon has lockers you can send the package to to pick up when you are ready.
You can send the packages to a friend or colleague who is home during the day.
