Junk Mail Help!
THESE ARE WONDERFUL IDEAS AND DARE I SAY......SOUNDS LIKE FUN!
When you get "ads" enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these "ads" with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own junk mail away.
When you get those "pre-approved" letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away the return envelope.
Most of these come with postage-paid return envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular 37 cents postage "IF" and when they receive them back.
It costs them nothing if you throw them away! Why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-paid return envelopes.
One of Andy Rooney's (60 minutes) ideas.
Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Send a pizza coupon to Citibank. If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them their blank application back! If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything you send them. You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing! It still costs them 37 cents.
The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own junk back in the mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM them. Let's let them know what it's like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all they're paying for it...Twice!
Let's help keep our postal service busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, and that's why they need to increase postage costs again. You get the idea!

Just be sure you don't semd the credit-card pre-approval form back. Shred that fucker or it can be used for identity theft.
BTW, who's the foxy brunette??
Hi Helen. Thank you for visiting my blog :-)
Hey Mark. That's me silly. (ha!) Seriously, I don't know her personally but she is in the bay area! Really!
Great Ideas, I think most people feel 'guilty' about junk mail even though it is thrust upon us.
She got nothin' on you, babe!
Great minds think alike.
I recently spent some time shredding junk mail, and credit card offers.
I made sure to save all of the return postage envelopes. I even blogged about it on one of my blogs. Not Sanity's Bluff, it was at Patriotic/Idiotic. I don't know the url offhand, and I am trying my fortune at Blog Magnet, or whatever this silly game it. I got within on pageview of level 8 and got zapped, oh well.
Catch you later,Helen.
Nice blog, but then that should be expected since it is you.
