Quick guide to reducing junk mail

According to Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, “When you purchase a product or service and give the company your name and address, the chances are you are being added to one or more mailing lists used for direct marketing. This is true when you buy a car or a house, use a shopping card, sign up for a credit card, subscribe to a magazine, buy something from a catalog, give money to a charity, or fill out a product registration form.”

Opt-out of direct mail campaigns, catalogs, coupon paks, phone books, sweepstakes offers, and other unwanted offers by visiting the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse and following their directions for getting off of mailing lists.
