When you get one of those envelopes in the mail from your bank or credit card company or the local liquor store that says, "Open immediately DO NOT DISCARD!" whats the first thing you do before opening the envelope?
I don't want their free money. I can't afford it.
But what if there is cash money in the envelope then you've shredded cash money that you could have just thrown away or discarded
For the record I usually throw it away but every once in a while I discard
I usually shred it first before opening. THEN, discard.
Open it, pull out anything tied to me and shred it, toss the rest.
It's junk mail.
