How To Get Something Good From Junk Mail

While most of my junk mail is designated as instant land-fill fodder, I do find I can get some use from it. I don’t mean the rare offers that might entice me to actually buy or invest or donate to some business or cause – so far there have been none of those. What I get use from is the free pens they send me to help me fill out my bank details further, and the nice little calendar one sent me as a useful way to remind myself of next year’s dates. One even sent me little labels with my address on for use on envelopes and a few charity Christmas cards. So, while their unsolicited invitations to give them my money feeds my ever hungry wheelie bins, the pen, calendar, cards and labels will find a future. Arthur Chappell
