Unfortunately, physical junk mail that clutters our mailboxes refuses to be a thing of the past. Follow these simple tips to ensure that your mailbox will no longer be filled with useless, unwanted ads and solicitations.

  1. If you have ever supplied your credit card information to a lending service, or simply owned a credit card, that information circulates throughout other credit card companies. Companies that will then end up sending you letter after letter in hopes of adding you to their list of customers. Visit http://www.optoutprescreen.com/ to opt out of the credit card company permanently or for a five year period of time.
  2. If you have ever received a catalog that you do not want, you can visit http://green.dexknows.com/DexGreen/selectDexAction.do to remove yourself from that catalogs mailing list.
  3. If any company mails you promos that say the following: return service requested, forwarding service requested, address service requested, or change service requested, return the unopened mail to the sender with a statement including “refused”, or “returned to sender”. This act should remove you from that certain organization’s mailing list.

By following these tips you will be able to trim down the physical mail you receive so that you are only left with what you deem important or necessary.
