Be wary of supplying your contact information when buying items at retail stores. In addition to adding you to that store’s mailing list, they may sell their mailing lists.
Online stores often have a checkbox at checkout asking if you’d like to be placed on a mailing list. Do not check this box, unless you’d like promotional email or snail mail from the seller.
Use an app such as Paperkarma to help you quickly photograph unwanted mail, and request to be removed from mailing lists.
To streamline the process, have a basket for unwanted junk mail in your home. Once you’ve collected a significant pile, perhaps a week’s worth, then follow some of the above tips. Repeat weekly until you have caught the majority of the junk mail, and you have made requests to stop it.
All of these requests take time to process, but within a few months, you should see a noticeable decrease in the amount of junk mail.
