If you haven’t already, now is a great time to stop all of those uninvited catalogs and advertisements piling up in your mailbox! A small investment in time can save you a lot more in the long run. The average person in the U.S. spends eight months in a lifetime dealing with junk mail. That’s a lot of wasted time, not to mention all the wasted trees, water and energy that go into making unwanted mail.
One option for stopping unwanted junk mail is using the free opt-out service provided by Catalog Choice. Go to Catalog Choice and sign up. Each time you’re bugged by unwanted junk mail, sign-in to Catalog Choice and enter the company name and stop that junk mail. You can also use the site to stop phone books. Signing up for the Catalog Choice service won’t stop all your junk mail so they recommend also signing up for DMA Choice too.
