You've got mail

How much junk mail do you get each day?

I’m not talking about Nigerian scams and other assorted bits of spam.

I mean real junk mail.

The stuff that gets slipped into your letterbox whether you want it or not.

Well it seems like we get a lot more than we probably realised.

According to US company 41-Pounds, the average person in America receives around 41 pounds of junk mail each year.

That’s more than 18kg for us folks in the metric world.

People in the US can now have 41-Pounds put an end to their junk mail problem.

And it only costs $41 for the privilege.

Nice idea I'm sure - but not as good as buying a self adhesive No Junk Mail sign from the local hardware store for $1.75.
