Decluttering your mail: reducing the flood of paper

  • Get bills delivered online and pay them online
  • Remove yourself from mailing lists (see resource links below)
  • Open the mail over the garbage and recycling bins and get rid of everything possible immediately
  • Unsubscribe from magazines you don’t read
  • Get bank statements electronically instead of on paper
  • Unsubscibe from your local paper (even free papers let you take yourself off their delivery list)
  • Post a “no flyers” sign on your mailbox
