If you’re like most people, your mailbox is overflowing with useless junk mail and unwanted catalogs. You can cut out that garbage just by using a handy new app — PaperKarma. (And even better — it’s free!)
Simply pull out your phone and snap photos of the offending mail. PaperKarma will figure out what it is and how to stop it. Using its massive database of company information, PaperKarma identifies your photo and instantly submits a request on your behalf. If they don’t know about the company already, they will work on adding it to its database. You can even track the mail you’ve submitted and see its status.
When I first saw this, I thought it was too good to be true. So I tried it out. Sure enough, within weeks all of my requests had been successfully processed. And within a couple of months, I saw the amount of mail drop significantly. Here are the items you can wipe out:
- Coupon Books
- Credit Card Offers
- White and Yellow Pages
Every Monday I feature a charity to support. But how about helping yourself your while helping the planet, too?
EVOLVE: Try out PaperKarma and let me know what your experience was like!
