Secret Mailing List

I’m not really sure who I’m talking to in these strips…apparently myself.

Since moving in, we’ve been inundated with junk mail relating to home stuff: security systems, garage doors, roofs, closets, remodeling, landscaping, etc. It’s getting a bit ridiculous. Our mailbox is completely full, they have stuff on our doorknob and some of them have even managed to stick flyers through the door. I know that property purchases are public record which is probably how we get put on these mailing lists, but it’s still a bit crazy. It took about a year and a half to get off all those wedding company mailing lists. Anyone know how long before the new homeowner mail stops?


  1. I just asked Bert this question and he said ‘about 2 years’. Gosh, I don’t remember at all. I know at least a year, but 2 seems so long. now we get crap for refinancing.

    1. it seems to have stopped after we moved, probably since they dont have our new address. but now all we get is a ton of house related things (insurance, blinds, security, etc)
