I’ve talked about eliminating junk mail before. I’ve been meaning to share these tips to reduce the catalogues and credit card offers, which I came across on the RIRRC website. I was pleased to find the Direct Marketing Association website and I quickly registered. A statistic on the RIRRC page states that the average American receives an estimated 41 pounds of junk mail a year. That’s a lot of paper. I’m still receiving coupon papers and service offers like the ones in the photo above. They are all addressed to “our neighbor” or “current resident” and there are often duplicate copies delivered on the same day. For offers from businesses like Geico and Verizon, I will call them again and try to get on a do not mail list—though it makes me a little uneasy to have to provide my name and address to a company just so that they’ll stop sending mail! As for the coupon papers… I’m still working on that.
