Save money by recycling the free paper, pictures or envelopes
that come unwanted to your mailbox. Some of the paper that comes is free
of writing and can be given to children to make planes or for coloring.
Envelopes can be used as paper or even turned inside out
reused. Padded envelopes can be reused by simply covering the old address
information and taping on the new address.
Sometimes junk mail has pretty pictures. Cut them out and use
them as inspiration for projects or decoupage.
some frugal tips to help control junk
- Remove yourself from mailing
lists that are not important to you. They just tempt you to spend money.
- Search the Internet for sites
to help remove you from receiving junk mail. You can opt out of everything from
catalogs to credit card offers and phone books.
- Put a "No Junk Mail" sign on
your mailbox for your postman.
