I use the Paper Karma app to get rid of junk mail. It actually works pretty good. Use it in combination with something like DeleteMe and the junk eventually stops coming.

I find the topic of "The Economics of Everyday Things" absolutely fascinating. It's incredible how economic principles are woven into our daily lives without us even realizing it. From the cost of our morning coffee to the price fluctuations of gas, economics plays a significant role. https://soundcloud.com/customise-sticker Consider something as simple as supply and demand. The way prices for goods like smartphones or sneakers vary depending on their popularity among consumers is a prime example of how these principles work. And let's not forget about the concept of opportunity cost – the idea that when we make a choice, we're forgoing other potential options. This is evident when we decide to spend money on one thing, say a movie night, instead of saving for a future vacation. https://about.me/Customise-Sticker
