Stop the Junk Mail!

junk mail

How much junk mail do you get in a week? For one dollar and a few minutes of your time, you can drastically reduce the amount of junk mail you receive.

Mail your name, address, signature, and a check or money order for $1.00 to Mail Preference Service, c/o Direct Marketing Association, P.O. Box 643, Carmel, NY 10512. You can also fill out the form online.

Not only will you cut down on waste, but you won’t have to sort through all of that annoying junk mail.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
