How I intercept junk mail every day

 

Length: 1:43
To make a long story short:  My junk mail never makes it past my foyer, thanks to an extra large wicker recycling basket at my front door.  A large & inviting recycling bin close to the source is your first line of defense in combating paper clutter.  The more attractive it is, the more likely you are to use it!

  1. Hi Kacy,
    I like your tip about sorting mail when you come in the door. However, don’t forget to have a bin for shredding things — like credit card offers or anything with personal information on it. These should not go into the normal “recycle bin”. I also shred any old rosters from organizations I belong to, in order to avoid identity theft for others.

    • As the words “credit card statements” were coming out of my mouth while filming, I was already regretting it! We were in such a filming rush that day and I didn’t actually have any junk mail in the house so I had to stage it! In hindsight, I would have re-shot it, as I do shred CC statements. I have a mini-shredder in my kitchen for this next to the trash. Thanks for the comment!

  2. I was getting ready to ask the same thing, I’m a big time shredder, I even shred the inside “order form” with my name on it in a catalog as well as the back cover. I was just wondering if you go through the recycling and divide the shred items? I just found your blog via Alejandra.
