One way to keep our home clean and organized is to simplify our possessions. We can do this by living in a small home and/or finding ways to sell or donate items we don’t need. We can also try going paperless, although there are some ways paper buildup happens that are beyond our control — ever heard of Junk Mail?
I don’t know about you but I feel really guilty about throwing away catalogs, newspapers, and excess packaging that comes in the mail. But, we often don’t have the time to go through it and we certainly don’t need to keep it laying around and cluttering up our home. What can we do about the excess that comes in the mail? We can remove ourselves from junk mail lists!
I ran across a very thorough tutorial for removing yourself from junk mail lists that will help reduce the amount of unnecessary items that come in the mail. They’ve listed phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses to contact for removing your address from mailing lists. There are also some practical tips for what to do and what not to do when it comes to contacting these companies.
I’m going to take a few minutes to implement these tips today. How about you?
How do you deal with junk mail?
