It's time once again to get rid of the nuisances that fill up life. First, the DO NOT CALL list. I know my first five years expired, but I re-listed, why do they still drive my insane? Thank goodness for caller id, or I'd loose my mind.
Unwanted, unrequested, undesirable mail: It's endless. Because we own two businesses and have good credit, we are buried under paper mailers. I get a flier per day from Mitt Romney, which I don't understand at all. I wouldn't vote for him, and each one makes me more determined. I have been stuffing all the paperwork back into the stamped envelops and sending it back to them. If everyone did this, they might stop. But I really feel that it's a waste of my time, more than their money.
Here are the "get off the mailing list" websites:
www.optoutprescreen.com -- let's you out of the major credit bureau's list for credit cards and insurance. You have to print the form and mail it. This is at least half my junk, so I did it.
www.coxtarget.com/mailsuppression/s/DisplayMailSuppressionForm -- these are those annoying blue envelops called Valpak with coupons galore. They claim to send out 45 million!! every time. This is appalling.
www.dmachoice.org/mps -- they charge $1 to your credit card, but it's worth it to me.
www.catalogchoice.org -- let's you select which catalogs to receive and which to jettison.
I have made it soooooo easy for you. Just click on each link and ten minutes later, you're done!
