Start the New Year By Simplify Your Mail

Are You Tired of Junk Mail?

If you dislike junk mail as much as I do and agonize over how much wasted paper is sent through the mail each and every day, you'll be interested in the following information I ran across while reading the recent Get Organized Now newsletter. "To reduce the amount of junk mail you receive, write to:
Mail Preference Service DMA
P.O. Box 9008
Farmingdale, NY 11735-9008
Include your name and address and a request to be removed from any list. And finally, stop the pre-approved credit card offers by calling Trans Union at 1-888-567-8688. They have options to remove your name for two years or permanently. They share data with Experian and Equifax so you won't have to call them to make the same request."

Happy New Year!

Thanks for the great info. Just the other day I almost had a temper tantrum over the amount of junk mail I have to sort, shred and recycle. YUCK!

You're welcome! I know, it's just all too much sometimes. I'm getting tons of catalogs lately that I'm sick of. What a waste of paper and time!

I love this tip. I just called the number right now. Can't wait for it to work!

Client Feedback

I work out of a home office without any administrative support. I worked with Melissa to organize both my personal and professional effects as I prepared to relocate. I wish I had done it years ago. While organizing my office and paperwork Melissa identified my natural tendencies and created an organizational structure that was easy for me to maintain. When I began looking for a personal organizer, I mostly wanted someone else to come in and take care of the mess I had allowed to build up over the years. Working with an “uninterested” party during the purging process helped me lighten my load considerably. During the process Melissa provided me with simple intuitive skills that have not only allowed me to maintain my newly found order but help friends and family organize as well. I can honestly say hiring Melissa is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Kelsi Reeves
