  • De-clutter your mail box

    Do you currently receive so much junk mail that you cringe when going to get your evening delivery?  Are you getting ready to sell your home and you are cleaning out the nooks and crannies of each room?  Well do not forget the smallest room outside your home, the mail box.  

    We all love to shop and when ordering online these days usually there is a checked box that signs you up for unwanted emails and catalogs.  To get rid of catalogs log on to www.catalogchoice.org.  Make sure to have your address label information so you can log the correct information to delete unwanted catalogs. 

    If you get an offer from banks regularily or insurance companies log on to www.OptOutPrescreen.com.  I remember about three years ago I tallied all the offers for money from banks and I had over $200,000 dollars in offers......really! I have not changed my insurance for many years and monthly I was getting at least 10 offers a month.  What a waste of trees.

    Sign up for a Junk Mail kit that contains sample form letters to send out at www.stopjunkmail.org.  Some other helpful but not always free sites are:
    www.privatecitizen.com
    www.41pounds.org
    www.tidymailbox.com

    Go green and clean up a small but mighty space in your lifestyle.
