    HUKD keeps down the price of stamps.....

    There was an artical in the newspaper this morning saying that royal mail are complaining that they are loosing money because people are not allowing junk mail, cutting the mail sent from businesses. If this continues then they are going to either put the price of stamps up, make some areas pick it up from a collection point rather than having it delivered or cut the deliveries to every other day.

    If this is the case, then with all the freebies and products people on HUKD order, we are helping to keep the price of stamps down and therefore doing a service to the rest of the country!

    Three cheers for HUKD!

    See, and we thought we were making things harder for them by ordering so much - little did we (or they) know that we were keeping them in a job!

    We have the council paper recycling bin in our porch and a shreader in the hallway, people shred their junk mail, we empty the shreaded bin into the paper recycling bin, voila.
    Of course we shouldn't have to, but vs. massive hike in postage costs I don't mind.
    Whether we like it or not the companies paying RM to send blind junkmail subcidises the consumer prices.

    Yup I am not bothered by junk mail (Although have to say, dont receive any even after signing up for all the freebies etc) just goes in the shredder and then the recycling bin (Although we have to put newspapers on top of it, because otherwise they wont take it! Whats the difference between shredded paper and whole paper???)

    they wont take shreddered papers by us either dont no why

    At the end of the day what difference does it make if the paper is shredded, it's still paper!

    [COLOR=royalblue]When I lived in Canada,all our post (known locally as mail) was held at the local post office in lockable piegion holes. It was a bit like the old locker rooms at school. At the end of the row of lockers there was a dustbin where you could put all your junk mail, there was also another bin where you put any tokens you did not want and there were people going thru all this lot looking for something. It was good system because nothing went to waste.[/COLOR]

    I wonder what the identity theft rates were then compared to now, my sister had inordinate problems from the Student Loan Company over a identify theft case which took some serious and nasty letters from my dad to sort out.

    Everyone in the family has a shredder and shreds anything with their name on, paranoid? Probably but better safe than sorry.

    I agree, I would take ALL mail home just to be on the safe side

    Also, this would cause problems for people (such as myself) who are not able to get out of the house. How do they get their mail??

    [COLOR=royalblue]There are no problems out there because all the sicko's are here - lol[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=#4169e1]Out there your mail is behind a locked door so you have to open it, and most coupons are non named so ID theft is not a prob.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#4169e1][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#4169e1]If you cannot get there, someone can use your key and get your mail.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=#4169e1]This sort of thing goes on out in the boonies, in the major cities mail is delivered to the door like in the UK.[/COLOR]
