The Secret to Receiving Less Mail

I was at the National Association of Professional Organizers Conference for 5 days and guess how many pieces of mail I received? Only 9! In addition, I did receive one local newspaper and one packet of flyers. Out of those nine pieces of mail, two were really good, a check and a copy of the news article in which I was quoted. Not bad, right? Would you like to know the secret of how you can receive less mail?

Top 3 tips on how to reduce the amount of mail you receive:

  1. Get your name removed from mailing lists for newspapers, magazines, catalogs and solicitations. Please note it can take up to 6 months to be removed from a mailing list. Some websites to try: www.privacycouncil.orgwww.junkmailstopper.comwww.dmaconsumers.orgwww.catalogchoice.org
  2. Go paperless with monthly statements, bills, and newsletters.
  3. Go high tech and use Nooks, Kindles and phone apps for newspapers, magazines, etc.
