Eliminating Junk Mail

A couple years ago I read an article that listed a phone number you could call and after providing your name and address you’d be opted-out of all those pre-approved credit card offers. I called and sure enough my junk mail dropped to almost zero. (In case you’re interested the numbers is 1-888-5-OPTOUT)

I never realized how much junk mail this stopped but now that I’m married, my wife, who hasn’t opted-out, gets 2-3 pieces of credit card offers a day. Now I’m about to embark on a little test of this system to see how quickly I can eliminate all of my wife’s junk credit card offers.
I’ll keep you posted.
