Less Mail, Less Credit Card Offers

How many pieces of mail do you receive that you rip up immediately?

I know that I have more than enough credit cards and do not need any more.  And if I wanted one, it would be of my choosing because I wanted it.

Recently I received a pre-approved credit card offer.  I didn't want it.  At the bottom of the letter is a phone number to call so that you can stop receiving "prescreened" offers of credit and insurance offers from the company sending you the offer along with other companies.

This "opt-out" is good for 5 years.

Call:  1-888-567-8688.

I did it once for my husband and then they ask if you want to do it for a spouse or family member, so I went through it again for myself.

Call:  1-888-567-8688.

If you are wondering if this is legitimate, I called my bank and asked them to verify the number and they did.

Maybe we can all save some paper too.

All-Clad Stainless at Bargain Prices

If you have any desire to own All-Clad basic stainless steel pans, look for the ones on sale if there are any left.

I noticed that many sites and stores were having sales on the stainless collection.  I thought that they were discontinuing the line and wanted to know why.  I had a decent amount of these pans and was wondering if they had improved on what I always thought was a great pan.

I got on the phone with All-Clad and was so glad I had called. The only change they are making is in the handle. They are using the same type of handle as is on the "d-5 line" which looks a bit sleeker, but other than that, it all works the same.  The new line of the stainless was coming out in June so they wanted to get all the product with the "old" handles off the shelves.

So I started shopping and bought myself a few pieces at unbelievable prices.  I love the All-Clad stainless and use the pieces all the time.  They clean up so easily.

It may be too late to find any of the remaining pieces, but if you do, grab them!
