  1. Julie, this is a great resource. I’ve been trying to find ways to get off these lists since the junk mail I get just clogs up my mailbox and then goes right in the trash. I always feel like it’s such a waste because I never look at any of it! Really great tip.

  2. Thanks Bridget! Make sure to keep track of your ‘junk mail’ since you have to identify businesses sending the mail through Catalogchoice.com. There are other service (you have to pay) that will get rid of alll names if you’re looking for a faster solution.!
