I’ve partnered up with technology lifestyle expert Carley Knobloch, from Digitwirl, to bring you some fun yet informative videos on various products and services related to technology that will help you get organized and simplify your busy life.
Paper is definitely a killer for many people to get a handle on. That’s because it just doesn’t stop coming and the mountains of paper that happen as a result can be overwhelming. Eventually we just stop dealing with it because we don’t know where to start. Anyone getting what I’m laying down? Today’s digitwirl shares some great tips for tackling our paper piles including some tips for getting rid of it altogether. I’ve got a few more sites to add to the list that you can use to help you stop the junk mail from being sent in the first place.
41pounds.org stops your junk mail and catalogs. They’ll contact dozens of companies on your behalf to stop your junk mail and protect the environment.
dmachoice.org helps you manage direct mail in four categories: credit offers, catalogs, magazine offers and other mail offers. You can request to start or stop receiving mail from individual companies within each category—or from an entire category at once.
catalogchoice.org control the catalogs, coupons, credit offers, phone books, fliers, circulars, newsletters, and other unsolicited mail you receive.
Give it a try, what do you got to lose except maybe a mountain or two :)
Notes from Carley:
Stacks and papers and piles, oh my! What starts off as a couple bills, some magazines or school notices can very quickly turn into messy mountains of papers all over your house.
Well, this week we’re going to show you how easy it is to rid yourself of all that paper and organize your home. First think of junk mail as unwelcome guests and don’t let it in your house, only touch something once (you’ll see what we mean by that), scan important stuff (we love the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300) so you can save it digitally and shred what’s left.
Check out this week’s twirl and see how getting rid of all that paper feels all kind of good.
