How stop junk mail

This works every time:

Save self addressed postage pre paid envelopes you recieve from junk mail distributors. Place other junk mail and/or coupons in pre paid junk mail envelopes for things like "Buy Two Hams, Get A Cornish Game Hen 1/2 Price", "Book this vacation and get a free wristwatch" or "For every two tanning appointments get a third FREE"

The wackier the offer, the better! Just nothing vulgar or pornographic.

It works like magic! Suddenly the junk mail stops and the companies never send you anything again! I love sending them back junk mail at no cost to me!!

Do you put your return address on there? Pre-paid return envelopes won't have your address already on them.

If not, then how do they know who's junk mail to stop?

Moving out of the country works - we don't even have mailboxes here! Our address is like this

3 kilometers South of the cemetary on the road to Cabanga
Look for fence painted black with white types
Ask for farm manager Nelson if we aren't around.

No kidding

I usually write "Resident" - and then the address, city and state.
