Ok – here it is! The challenge of the month – Reduce the Amount of Paper You Receive. This is another major clutter peeve of mine. I don’t ask for this mail and I certainly don’t want it. Yup, I know I can recycle it – but really, I’d rather no one put forth the effort at all to give it to me.
I think I ordered something from Pottery Barn once five years ago and this is the result. I recognize that actually getting off mailing lists may take longer than the end of the month, but I’m going to track it nonetheless. Stay tuned for a detailed account of how much paper I receive on a weekly basis. I also plan to reduce my mail in other ways – such as fully converting to online billing. I’ll share information as I come across it.
By the way, this is only about a week’s worth of mail.
