I love to take a prepaid envelope and stuff it with offers from other companies and mail it back. It doesn't matter what company name is on the envelope. I just make sure my name is not on any of the stuff I send them.
+1 I HATE HATE HATE junk mail!!

Sales calls too. I've been getting this recorded sales call saying they have great news about my credit card account, but I've never had a credit card...

I get those calls too. Depending on what mood I am in, I will press #2 and talk to a live person. I pretend I don't understand what the problem is. I pay my bill and above the required amount. I am never late. I can keep that person on the phone for about five minutes wasting their time so that they can't go on to the next call that just might give them a commission. I am good. I can even make them think I am crying because that person is going to shut off my credit card immediately. A couple of times I have even gone into hysterics.

My mailbox used to be filled everyday with junk mail. I started to take a sharpie and wrote across the envelope without opening it, "Return To Sender." Our boxes are those small ones that the mailman opens a door to. the outgoing mailbox is just below them. So I just put them "Returns" right back into the outgoing mailbox. I did this for about two months. Now I very rarely get junk mail. Evidently, when they get it back, they take my name of their mailing list.
