I just wanted to share a tip on how to “make” your own return address labels instead of writing your address in the upper left corner. I cut mine out of junk direct-mail. This way I don’t need to shred my junk mail to guard against personal information. I avoid needing a shredder and I get free labels. I attach them to outgoing mail with clear tape.
My intention behind this is not to save a few bucks but to reduce the amount of waste I send to the landfill and correspondingly the number of trees that need to be cut down failing to do this.
