Cut Out the Junk - Mail, That Is

Who would like to get less junk mail in your mailbox? Me, me!! Here are a few ways you can reduce the number of unsolicited credit card offers, catalogs, yellow pages and random of other flotsam that arrives in your mail box daily.

But first a little reminder, that if you have donated to a group or purchased a product from a company, legally they can still send you mail until you specifically tell them not to.  The following options will help with the unsolicited selling and sharing of your name.

Another quick tip is to setup junk email account (think Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo) for doing requests like this just in case your email falls into the hands of a spammer.

The third week of April is Organize Your Files Week.  Oh boy, I just saw everyone’s eyes glaze over. I know, filing is not anyone’s favorite task but it is a necessity for a well-run office AND home.
