Good morning Kristin,

I send the self postage envelope back with the clutter in it; helps the USPS and the local dump.

Make yourself a great day.

Ray and I think alike Kristin.  It takes about 3 times repeating this process and you're unsubscribed for life.

Kristin, I love info like this!  I have to bookmark and get back to this...you know those continuing To Do lists. I want to make sure that I still get some of my fav catalogs, since I live out in the middle of nowhere and it helps me shop! Not seeing nearly the amount of mail we used to get. I get stuff from the nonprofits I belong to like World Wildlife Foundation. But, then they send photo cards, so that's good!!

Good luck and success.

Kristin - this is a great way to get rid of it. Junk mail is such a pain; I did this several years ago and it has helped.
