I must be weird! I like junk mail. It comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it even has little surprises in it, almost like Cracker Jacks. Some of my favorites contain little plastic cards in them that imitate credit cards. My husband uses those plastic pieces in his arts and crafts hobbies. AOL used to send out discs to convince people to use it’s business. Those discs make good decorations for Christmas, or even sparklers to put in fruit trees to scare away birds. I’ve seen it done and made some decorations myself. Those disc boxes could also be used to put homemade necklaces in for presents.
Some junk mail has shown up with pennies, or penny stamps inside. The pennies went into a jar; the stamps went on packages. Am I recycling? Sort of.
Some of the junk mail can be used for paper mache projects. Some, which are almost like newspapers can be used when shining shoes or painting items. Of course a lot of junk mail goes into the trash unopened. It gives the trash man a little extra to haul off. Even if there aren’t any bills in the mail, I can’t almost always count on having junk mail to sort through. At least someone other than bill collectors know I’m here!
