Drowning in Junk Mail – This Week in Junk Mail 48 pieces

All 45 pieces

I have stalled. I am stuck at 40-50 pieces a week. I don’t expect to drop again until the end of the month when the junk mail from Base Connect stops. I am taking a photo of every mailpiece in PaperKarma. I have entered over 140 different companies since I stated using PaperKarma in late July. A human from the DMA got back to me. They want people to mail in a formal complaint. I am going to try and get an e-mail address out of them.

Drowning in Junk Mail – This Week in Junk Mail 45 pieces

All 45 Pieces

Another fantastic week with less than 50 mailpieces. After 3 months Nova List got back to me. Strange I don’t remember Sunrise Data Service’s email at the bottom of the contact page last time. Did them getting back to me after all that time have anything to do with me contacting the CEO of HSP Direct, a major client if Nova List? Who knows. All I do know is that October can’t come soon enough.

perfume samples from magazines
This week I got a Cosmopolitan magazine and while I was flipping through it, my nose was assaulted by the perfume samples. That is when inspiration struck me. I ripped them out of the magazine and cut them up into smaller pieces and stuck them into the envelopes.

Drowning in Junk Mail – This Week in Junk Mail 53 pieces

All 53 pieces

Just as I thought, the holiday week affected the junk mail last week. It looks like 50 is my new average. That is great, I have shaved off 100 pieces of junk mail since my high of 154. This week I sent an email over to the Consumerist about Kingsley, Harper & Hatfield and the fantastic response they had to my Prohibitory Order. The Consumerist loved it as did their readers. I had lots of great comments, and over 300 people went to DMA Choice page. I hope most of them signed up for the service.
