Clean Up Your Mailbox Opt Out

If you're like me, you get waaaaaaaaay more spam emails, mail offers, catalogs from places you ordered from once 5 years ago, phone calls.


My mailcarrier loves me and here's 2 reasons why.
DMAChoice.org
From their website:
Founded in 1917, the DMA represents nearly 3,600 organizations—including most of the leaders in the direct marketing community.
Heads up-opting out of DMAChoice is not free. It's $2 online and requires a credit card.

OptOutPreScreen.com
From their website:
Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Consumer Credit Reporting Companies are permitted to include your name on lists used by creditors or insurers to make firm offers of credit or insurance that are not initiated by you ("Firm Offers"). The FCRA also provides you the right to "Opt-Out", which prevents Consumer Credit Reporting Companies from providing your credit file information for Firm Offers.

Opting out is free, takes less than 5 minutes of your time and is good for 5 years. It will ask you for your SSN. If you're getting pre-approved credit card offers, those places already have access to your credit report. #optout

One of the largest online data brokers is Acxiom. They have a lot of personal info about me, you and probably everyone we know.
It's super easy to opt out of having that data about you shared with other marketers.
Acxiom Opt Out
It will ask for any current and former names. (helpful if you still get stuff under multiple names)
It will ask phone numbers, emails and addresses, including PO Boxes that you use.

Doing this today probably isn't going to stop the onslaught of holiday catalogs and offers-because those are already printed and sitting somewhere waiting for the mail date. Also-it takes 90 days for some of the businesses to get the updated mail list.


Unwanted phone calls. I don't get nearly as many since I put myself on the free National Do Not Call Registry
I'm not gonna say I don't get any because scammers gonna scam. Every year, I verify my number is still in the registry.

Protip: when you sign up for store rewards cards, do not give your telephone number. I don't care what the clerk tells you about oh they don't sell your info. Nope-you can have these 10 digits of my choosing.
Past getting a discount for giving up your info, you don't realllly know what exactly you're agreeing to. If you have a relationship with a business, they or their parent/subsidiary can call until you tell them in writing to stop. Ditto for signing up for random things that ask for your number.


The downside to cleaning out my various mailboxes is less mail to throw out, my phone's not ringing off the hook with nonsense. Yeah not seeing this downside.

Pet Friendly Green Cleaning Lady Norfolk Virginia November 2017 Schedule

so.......it's been a minute.

I have precious few slots open in November 2017 for some one-time pre-holiday cleaning or dependable monthly cleaning clients in Norfolk and Olde Towne Portsmouth.
Portsmouth-I have afternoon (1230-1pm ish) monthly cleaning spot open on 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sundays only.
Norfolk-I have afternoon (1230-1pm ish) weekly or bi-weekly housecleaning opening on Mondays only.
I also have a monthly clean available on Saturdays. I *might* even venture out of Norfolk or Olde Towne. Let's talk.

Before you get an excite: I do not take on larger homes. You are better served by a team cleaning service than an independent maid.
Trust me. No I don't have a recommendation.


Dearest Interns, Residents, Attendings, Chiefs of Staff and Fellowship Doctors. Hey. Hi. You need me. My last 4 #peds Interns have or will be Chiefs. Why? Because driven Doctors are not fucking around with mundane things like laundry, trash, dishes and vacuuming.

Storm Supply Checklist

It's that time of year-when outside turns wet and windy aka Hurricane and Nor'Easter Season.

While everyone else is all OMG FRENCH TOAST EMERGENCY-here's a real list of things you probably should have on hand.

1- a well stocked first aid kit.
2- 30 days worth of RX meds.
3- pet food.
4- bleach-this is one of those times where nothing else will do.
5- disinfectant spray/wipes. I recommend Seventh Generation.
6- hand sanitizer.
7- tarps.
8- multiple sets of dish gloves.
9- batteries.
10- flashlights/twinkle lights.
11- transistor radio.
12- mops and rags.
13- trash bags.
14- gallon zip top bags.
15- mosquito repellent.

A good read on Basic Survival Sanitation can be found here: http://www.quickstartsurvival.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/SWAT_aug17_Sanitation.pdf

Nothing motivates me to bring in the yard furniture like an impending storm. Them plastic chairs can do some damage.
Norfolk floods in a hot second of rain. Don't drive through the flood water. Be safe out there.
