Decreasing Junk Mail

Thought you guys, especially when on a cruise, might be interested in this.

First this link that allows you to stop cataloqs, magazines and mail offers from thousands of companies.

https://dmachoice.thedma.org/

Then this one which allows you to stop credit card offers.

Just did all this a couple of days ago so we will see how it works out.

Switched 12 years ago to a PO box at a shipping store so that I could easily get my mail forwarded wherever I was. Never activated the mail box in front of my house, so nothing is delivered to it. That alone eliminated 75% by volume of the junk mail. I get nothing addressed to resident. Almost all my bills come electronically. After all that, there isn't much left.

We signed up for St Brendan'e Isle. Hence wanting to reduce what they might receive on my behalf to the smallest amount possible.

DMA works but you must inform them of ALL the variations of your name .

Tear off the junk mail addresses for a month or so and use them all.
