Junk Mail Fun

Receive a lot of junk mail...do not through it out...if you already have a paper shredder pull it out of the closet or invest in 1 for about $20...now shredd it...I prefer the straight shredder...strips of paper...you can now use this paper for packing and shipping instead of having to buy bubble wrap or someone else shredded paper...plus you have gotten rid of anything that has your name on it...

Oh yes! I've done this many times!! Save all of the colored junk papers and it really looks pretty. Great to use in gift boxes and bags, too!

I pack up the junk mail, including the outside envelope into the prepaid envelope and send it back to them. I circle our name and tell them not to send me any more credit card offers. When it arrives again in a couple months, I send it all back to them again in the prepaid envelopes. Eventually they get the message, at least it keeps the postal workers with mail to deliver. With everything going paperless, I'm feeling sorry for our post men.
