Podcast 051 – Snail Mail Control

Podcast 051 – Snail Mail Control

A while back I shared my collection of links to take control your mail (HERE).  If you have not yet visited that article, I highly recommend taking the time to rearrange how your mail is handled, remove yourself from marketing lists, and compartmentalize your address as part of an overall strategy to reduce how often your real name and physical address are used together.  This past week I recorded another podcast with co-host Justin Carroll to discuss these mail control tactics, introduce some more advanced strategies, and explain how we can use these methods to our advantage.  Take a listen and I always appreciate your feedback!

  1. You mentioned P.O. boxes in the podcast. Do you know of other options? What is your view on UPS boxes?

  2. A PO Box is a great first step and often the only step needed to begin compartmentalizing your address. UPS box would be the same, or any other CMRA, Commercial Mail Receiving Agency. You have to have another option other than using your physical address. Another option is to use an out of state address at a mail forwarding service like Escapees.com. They offer physical addresses in 3 different states that are friendly to the RV lifestyle, but can also be used by privacy seekers to compartmentalize their address even further and to register vehicles and obtain a drivers license in a different state than. That is another topic altogether, but check it out if you are interested in distancing yourself further from where you actually live and want to explore the “nomad” life for privacy sake.
