Dump the Junk Mail

Junk mail has a funny way of creeping in and taking over our countertops and wreaking havoc in our lives. We flip through flyers thinking about the things we might need some day or the restaurants we haven't tried or the next program we should sign up for. This junk then becomes another thing to do... maybe... someday. Then the junk gets thrown into the pile with the other unmade decisions.

So much for a paperless society, right! Information is coming at us faster than ever before in this digital age and we have tons of information at our fingertips when we need it. But still that junk mail demands its presence in our home.

If you’re ready to tackle the junk mail, start by managing it as it comes into the house. Just Say No To The Junk! When you bring in the mail, head straight to the trash and dump the junk.

Now here are a few ways you can get off of junk mail lists...

Take notice of any catalogs you might be getting and don’t need. You can call the company and ask to be taken off their list or sign up for a free account at Catalog Choice and they will do it for you.
Obviously.com has a comprehensive DIY guide to stop junk mail, email and phone calls.
Just like the national Do Not Call Registry, Forest Ethics is campaigning to start a national Do Not Mail Registry. In the meantime, they offer opt-out forms that will allow you to contact some of the largest junk mail offenders.
