Declutter Challenge Day 30: Cutting Junk Mail Clutter

Declutter Challenge Day 30:  Cutting Junk Mail Clutter

Ever wonder how you can cut out the endless credit card offers or the catalogs for stores you don’t even shop at?  How about ending the phone calls during dinnertime?  Or the onslaught of emails encouraging you to save 20 percent?

Here are five tips for reducing that clutter of information, whether it comes through the mail, the phone or online:

1.   Opt out of credit card solicitations by visiting OptOutPrescreen.com.
2.   Reduce other junk mail for up to five years through the Direct Marketing Association’s Mail Preference Service. (They also have an option for unsolicited emails.)
3.  Reduce unwanted calls at home by signing up for the National Do Not Call Registry.
4.  Unsubscribe from unwanted email lists with a site like TheSwizzle or Unroll.me, which will even create a daily digest of the ones you want to keep.
5.  Look for the “unsubscribe” link on the bottom of some emails.  You can remove yourself with just a few clicks.
