No. I've been thinking about opting out of junk mailings. For $1.00 you can opt out of unwanted junk mail for 5 years. www.dmachoice.org

My dad has actually kept track of how much he gets in the mail and has counted 2000 pieces- and that's for 6 months. He is on A TON of mailing lists!
I guessed at it on a trivia question and was astounded it was the right answer!
I thought it might be more.
Good morning Conrad. Who the heck figures this stuff out? Folks have a lot of free time on their hands or is it free?
Conrad Allen - now I am disappointed!
For me, the flyers of just listed just sold and I am the best Realtor in town itself will be about 20 lbs every year - which usually is only 15% of my total junk mails!
That's pretty freaking amazing. You know I heat my house with a woodstove. I guess I put about 41 pounds of junk mail in it a year as fire starter.
one pound is too much for me!
I think I may exceed the avg.
It keeps a few industries in business.
I think I get more than 41 pounds of junk mail.
Now, I'm curious as to who the people were that weighed the mail to get this statistic?
Conrad Allen I am getting 4 other peoples junk mail.
Such a shame too ... a big time suck for me as I shred my name and address before placing it in the recycle bin. Those poor trees
That is all that comes to my home mail box
I think we receive more than our quota.
No kidding. That is a lot of waste.
That is a lot of JUNK!!!! Poor mailman and trash man.
and I imagine 40.5 are my postcards.....but the balance keeps us in business....
That's a lot of junk.
Why does it seem like more if I spread it?
You can opt out of most of the junk for free do a federal "opt out" and stop all the soft credit pulls and credit offers that can lead to identity theft https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/.../0262-stoppi...
Amazing! I know I opted out a few years ago for free and it made a big difference. The post master told me they have a form you can complete for free and it will slow it down even more.
That is amazing amount of junk mail. Yikes, thanks for sharing this info. A
