Just yesterday I complained to my husband how we seem to be getting more junk mail. I thought with the credit crisis and slow retail sales there would be less credit card offers and merchant catalogs crowding our mailbox. Too bad we still get several pieces of junk mail each day. While we recycle what we can, it would be better if companies would stop us sending them altogether.
I did some research and found out there are free services like Catalog Choice and 41pounds.org that let you stop unwanted mail. You can stop catalogs and mailings you already receive and you can prevent companies from sharing your name and address. There have been numerous times I have bought something online, like a baby product, and all of a sudden I get catalogs from similar retailers. It may be helpful when you actually have a baby, but you don't need to know about discount diapers for ten years!It doesn't take long to sign up and you are helping to prevent more waste from entering our landfills. Do you have other methods to stop junk mail?
