I seem to be on just about every mailing list out there. My mailbox is filled with useless information on a daily basis. I get magazines, catalogs, credit card offers, books the size of novels full of numbers I don't understand (from my 401b provider), and letters from Publishers Clearing House telling me that I "could be a winner" if I subscribe to more magazines. I also get fliers from the guy who did my mortgage loan (I haven't been here that long...so no, I am not selling yet), every new Chinese restaurant within a 10 mile radius, and advertisements offering me more student loans (as if I needed to owe more). I decided to teach all these mailbox cloggers a lesson by not accepting their mail. I decided to follow Nancy Reagan's advice to just say NO. I rifle through it and take what I need, putting the rest back in the box. Take that you junk mailing tree killers!
Fast forward to the end of the week. My mailbox is overflowing, my mailman has probably crammed in some hate mail (but I wouldn't know it), and I can't mail anything until I empty the box.
