Well I thought I would give a blog a try. Is everyone fed up with all the junk mail these days. Yesterday I got 8 credit card applications in the mail. Six of them were the exact same offer. Three were addressed to myself and three were addressed to my wife. I have had enough. A few weeks back I heard of someone taking the junk mail and sending it back to the sender in the supplied postage paid envelope. I removed everything that had my name on it and any barcodes, folded in up and put in it in the return envelope so they can pay for the return postage. I told my wife I had a new hobby, she laughed. I realized how much of my weekly trash was other people's junk that I did not request. I doubt it will make a difference, but it's my way of getting back at bulk junk mailers. Lee
