Junk mail cure
[Return to Topics]

I admire novel ideas: My ex used to keep OUR church folders handy to exchange for THEIRS when they rang our doorbell. And surprisingly, they would REFUSE our propaganda, even though they expected a donation for theirs. They quit coming. :)

I once made a cheapy rubber stamp that fit 3 lines and simply said
"I hate
and every time i'd hafta sit in the can and tear them outa my new magazines, i'd take the trouble to see they got mailed back with my return message.

Now here's a novel idea for junk mail - enjoy :)

There are two types of junk mail that everyone gets: coupons for stupid BS that you don't want, and credit card applications for credit to buy stupid BS that you don't need. Here's how to take care of all your junk mail in one fell swoop: use the postage-paid envelope that credit card companies send you with their applications to send them the OTHER junk mail you receive. It's just that simple. Imagine the frustration of credit card companies when they have to spend millions of dollars every year on first-class postage just to open up an envelope and find Pizza Hut coupons inside. The envelopes are intended to be used for "BUSINESS REPLY MAIL," and so use them for their intended purpose. You're sending them valuable money-saving coupons which could mean big savings to credit card companies, and it makes good business sense to use them. Consider it a reply to their business proposition with a business proposition of your own: 35 cents off a large, one-topping pizza. In fact, they should be thanking you for giving them these money-saving opportunities. Or how about sending them credit card applications from other credit card companies? Be creative."

Dont you love the envelopes that say DO NOT THROW THIS AWAY or PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL. Almost guaranteed they are junk.

I'm not one to love anything other than my wife and our kids. I like, have liked, a lot of things, a truck, a cow, a cat, etc.
This recycling program of yous is about as close to loving an activity I may take up.
Reads like the new beginnings for a brand new game's rules.
Have you thought about product registrations, patents, copyrights.
There's one drawback I should probably keep to myself. That's he occasional ned for wadded paper for fire starting. NOTE: I didn't say that, I don't want Willy N making a false run out here for an old potbellied fire.
While I ponder's, I'm going to do some sipping.
