I am one of those people who is drowning in paper. DH finally agreed to cancel the newspaper since we only read 2 sections of it anyway, and also agreed to let me throw out magazines older than 2 years (we had been saving decorating magazines since we are slowly remodeling just about our whole house...)
Anyway, a big part of my problem is credit card applications and mortgage refinance applications. I shred these, but with the stupid plastic card in there I have to open the thing and take it out, or else I can't recycle the shreddings. So as a result, they pile up til I can get around to it. We get at least 4 of these daily and usually more. I have a couple of grocery bags of them, waiting to be opened and shredded and I am SICK OF IT.
How can I get off the lists for this junk? All I know is that the direct marketing association list does not work for this stuff. Does anyone know how to stop it?
