-Junk mail is an old-fashioned problem that now has a high-tech solution in the way of two free smartphone and tablet apps.
If your problem is simply too much junk mail, try downloading PaperKarma onto your iPhone, Android, or Windows phone.
After you create an account, use your smartphone to take a photograph of the offending junk mail sender, submit the photo, and PaperKarma will search their extensive database to remove your name and address from companies' lists.
The app will then show you the status
of all your submissions and will let you know when you're in the clear.
Because there are laws protecting consumers' requests, most reputable companies will comply.
Well, now that you've gotten rid of all of your catalogs, you might still need to do some shopping.
If that's the case, give the app catalog spree a whirl on your iPad.
The app features over 350 catalogs from well-known brands like Nordstrom and Eddie Bauer and makes it so easy to browse and buy without continuing that cycle of wasted paper.
