Mail

I always look forward to opening my mail box whenever I come home - who knows there might be some surprises waiting for me?!! Like a parcel notice (yahoo, jumping for joy!) or a postcard from some exotic place or even maybe a letter! But the past few days aside from having bad weather, which makes our mail (actually just bills) a bit damp (hopefully the Landlord will do something about those mail boxes - wishful thinking!) I just get coupons and loads and loads of flyers and leaflets from all sorts of groceries, gardening centre and whatever shop that sells something and can give me a leaflet within 3 kilometers from where I live. If you don't believe me here's a proof of that special mail that occupied my mail box on one Saturday morning. After arriving from our usual grocery shopping task,my mail box greeted me with this:I think there are about 15 shops in here. What is so irritating -I got it actually after I've done my grocery shopping so therefore I learned that the tomatoes in Rewe (bottom right flyer) are cheaper than where I bought mine. And that Praktiker (second to the left flyer on top) is selling a lawn mower machine for €249.99 (which I really don't need because I don't have a garden). What a waste on all that paper (trees!!) and all that ink and energy (oil!oil! oil!) to produce all these leaflets/catalogues. In most times I just throw them (including the mid/weekend weekly paper with all the blah blahs!). Why do I need such catalogues when I (and probably more than half the 80 million population of Germany ) can actually check them online?

Hi Toni
Put a notice on your mail box -- "NO JUNK MAIL PLEASE". You could try doing that. It works here..
Cheers
