Sound Off: How do I stop receiving the mountains of junk mail that we get every day?

Have a little fun with this. Let’s call it … Junk Sharing.
Most junk mail includes a postage paid return envelope. Take this envelope and stuff it with the other junk mail received by another company, and visa-versa … Make sure you stuff as much as you can in this envelope as to increase the costs of the return postage. Also, include the envelope, or cut out the portion that shows “Resident” and the address they sent it to. I’m sure they will take you off the list as soon as they figure out what you are doing. Have a nice day !!!
