You can opt out of many types of mailings. I used to get two Capital One offers and two Geico offers a week (one at PO Box, one at street), as did my husband. I went to DMA (Direct Mail Association) and found a link to opt out of unsolicited credit/insurance offers. Those mailings stopped! I also opted out of certain catalogs from the DMA site.

All this decreases pressure on the postal system, so opt out and maybe there will be fewer increases in the future.
I went to their website but couldn't find a link like that
