Catalogs, phone books, postcards, coupons... when fighting the war on junkmail, one can feel a little outnumbered. Fortunately, there's an app that offers a peaceful solution— it's called PaperKarma. In anyone's quest to go paperless, the first step is to limit the amount of paper that enters the house, and PaperKarma does just that. Just scan the offending junkmail with your smartphone's camera (available for iPhone, Windows and Android phones), and PaperKarma will use that photo to recognize the piece of mail, contact the company and unsubscribe you.
So, sit down with a pile of Pennysavers this sunday and within weeks you'll see the incoming paper go way down. Then wait for the accolades from the trees and your mailman. Watch this week's Twirl to learn more about how it works.
