Please, oh please Mr. Postman….stop stuffing all that useless crap in my mailbox! Every day you trudge up the driveway with your arms full of ads for satellite TV, mattresses, credit cards, loan consolidation, new and used cars and of course, the bonus piece, The Penny Saver.

I don’t need to save a penny, kind sir, at least not by spending much more than that to buy some stuff I dont need..besides, didnt it cost them much more than a penny to fill my mailbox with this paperwork? Is it actually made for those people that don’t get much mail to give them something to read? I don’t know. I have never seen anything worthwhile in this stuff…ever. It all goes straight from the mailbox into the recycling bin. If I could get it there without touching it, I would. But alas, I cannot. The mailman must carry around 1,000 of them every day to deliver, we all have to carry it into the house, then to the bin out back, then the trash guys have to come get it, then some other people sort it at the trash facility, and then…well, you get the picture. All for no reason.

Imagine the amount of junk mail you get per day, and multiply that times 124 MILLION households (2005)…thats a lot of trash.

If you are like me and you are tired of receiving this junk mail day in and day out, there is something you can do about it. I am not saying that it works, but you can at least pretend it does. I have filled out forms, called numbers, written letters…and yes, the bulk of the junk has stopped coming, but that damn Penny Saver and all the extra crap with it is still in the mailbox everyday. Here are some ways to try to stem the tide of junk mail:

  1. Hmmm…yes, it does Rebecca. I have never looked at it, so maybe that is the key. We just recycle all that stuff immediately.

    I will give it a look when it shows up and try that route. The problem is that our mailperson just shoves it in everyone’s mailbox, so sometimes we get someone elses. Guess he just figures we are all getting it, so who cares whose is whose!

    I will let you know..Thanks!

  2. Does your Penny Saver arrive with a little address card, maybe with a “Have You Seen This Child” on it? If so, that will tell you who is sending this Penny Saver. It should have an address, and maybe a phone number (probably to advertise). Call them (or look them up in the directory or on the web) and tell them you want off the list. They will either process it themselves or give you another number to call. Let me know how it goes!
