It’s insane how much mail I get that I never open. I keep a recycle bag right at my front door and as I bring the mail in, I just immediately throw all the flyers, credit card offers, and charity appeals into it. But somehow I still end up with piles of the stuff that I have to sort through to find the few pieces I really need to look at.
Today was a breaking point. So I just looked up how to get my name off of lists and found this great page on the Federal Trade Commission website that provides instructions on how to take your name off lists for mail, email, and phone marketers. It will probably take a few weeks before I see a real impact, but at least I got the process started.
