Reducing Unwanted Junk Mail

Back By popular request... um... sort of...

How to get rid of junk mail, that paper stuff cluttering up your mailbox. 

Blogger keeps crashing on me, I am going to post this as is... it's time for me to do other chores and blogger and or the internet is cantankerous again. 

my new improved search engine, that google updated on this blog, refuses to let me find the original article and doesn't work the way it should anyhow, but it's fun to try to search it, as all sorts of other mayhem I probably wrote,  turns up

If you're confused, then welcome to 2016 technology!

Reducing Unwanted Junk Mail


Removal  from Pre-Approved Cards and Insurance

For Opting OUT...
Read their website CAREFULLY, you do not have to give them your Social Security number nor your date of birth, nor your telephone. They ask for all this but the fine print says it is not required. 


Receiving unwanted catalogs in the mail when you are a traveler can be a real nightmare. Especially when months of mail catch up to you and it includes fifty pounds of catalogs because you ordered one little part months ago.

To Remove Your Name from All Catalog Mailing Lists:

Send an e-mail to optout@abacus-us.com with your name and mailing information. Abacus is the database used by nearly all product catalogs.

To Opt-Out of Just the Catalogs that You Don't Want (Or to make sure certain companies are specifically notified):

Create a free account at catalogchoice.org  then choose the catalogs that you'd like to unsubscribe from. They'll take care of the rest.

I have recently done both because I don't need or want catalogs from anybody about anything. I like to think I am doing more with less!

That reminds me, another nice thing about shopping with Amazon is they never send you any catalogs. Hooray!
