This is another post that could fit into a book day or a green living day. I opted to go with book day.
Junk mail and phone books. Copious amounts of the former arrive in our mailboxes every week, and the latter is copious all by itself, yes? Well, if you are still getting them, here's what you can do (if you're in the US):
Sign up on the National Do Not Mail list.
Opt out of receiving phone books.
Keep those credit card offers out of your mailbox.
Only get the catalogs you want.
I hope you're all as enthused by these as I am. I opted us out of the prescreened offers years ago when I worked for a credit bureau, but the rest of them I'm brand-new to. I'm looking forward to less junk mail, which is turn is less clutter in my house. And fewer things to shred and recycle. And, I hope, more trees in the ground instead of in my mailbox.
Have you ever used any of these services? Do you plan to?
