I am thrilled to be part of The Neat Fleet, a group of specialists who are passionate about using Neat products to reduce paper clutter and increase their productivity. After I did a video on Neat Desk last year around tax season, I was asked to be Neat's eco fleeter and I am featured on their site now in honor or Earth Month! This is a great opportunity for me to teach businesses and their employees how to make their offices more eco-friendly.
In this day and age, most things are digital. We email, we text, we video chat. Telecommuting has become a common way to do work, and it saves so many resources, especially since it keeps cars off the road. But there are a few office matters that are still dependent (physical). However, if you're creative and computer confident, there are some workarounds.
I've had it up to here with junk mail! At my job it just comes pouring in and I'm sick of it. I've registered us on the Do Not Mail list and I've used Catalog Choice, but it keeps coming! So I am doing it all manually, and it really isn't that bad if you do it everyday.
- I collect all catalogs/magazines, newsletters, mailings, postcards, etc. - I keep a list of what I've cancelled so I didn't duplicate the process with the same company
- I used to call all the companies, but it took forever. So now I Google them, find their websites, look for "Contact Us" or "Customer Service", and email them.
- In the email heading I write "Please remove from mailing list" and in the body I write that again, followed by the address EXACTLY as it is on the mailing. If there is a customer number and key code I include that as well.
