Keeping in Touch With Loved Ones

  • Create an in-box.Designate something as a mail in-box, such as a pretty basket or tray. It can be anything that will hold about a week’s worth of mail, but no more than that.
  • Set up a recycling bin.Place a recycling bin or trash can near the in-box, so you’ll have a place to throw all the junk mail that you don’t intend to open.
  • Buy a shredder.Consider a paper shredder to dispose of documents with personal information and account numbers. This will help reduce the risk of identity theft.
