What To Do With Those Political Mailers
Living in a battleground state, the stakes are high for the candidates, as they are throwing tens of millions of dollars at ads to inform you just how much of a lowlife their opponent is. Mail is arriving in bulk in an effort to inform voters of the impending doom and consequences a your vote can have on the future of this great country.
It is up to you to save America, stay the course, time for a new direction, tax more, tax less, the 1% the 99 %, the 47%, the jobs, healthcare, It all rests on how you cast that ballot.
If you're like me and already know which way you're voting (which I would guess most of us know by now), the attack ads on television are beyond tiresome, and at this point, many of us have had enough. Every time I check the mailbox, I'm bombarded by mailers, piles of colorful fliers full of exclamation points and large bold fonts. They warn me, guide me, and scare me into voting for whoever is paying the postage.
But this isn’t' a political piece, I don't care how you vote, really. I'm merely suggesting what to do with the tons of junk mail you receive in this election process. Recycle them? Sure, but I suggest you have a little bit of fun first. I've tried writing RETURN TO SENDER to no avail, So here I present a few ways to use political mailers.
I think this is the obvious choice. If you're like me, you can never find the dust pan. No problem, grab one of these card stock fliers and sweep up your mess into it's sturdy fold. Politicians never have a problem rolling up their sleeves and getting dirty, so feel free to cover them with your own.
As I mentioned above, these super sturdy mailers are built to withstand the elements, this includes the condensation from your tasty beverage. They make a perfect coaster, so whether it be Mitt or Barack, kick back and enjoy
So you're not a fan of either candidate, well make a fan. Here in Virginia, early October can still be warm at times. As the rhetoric heats up in the battle states, we may need to cool off just a bit. Once again the politicians have provided us with the tools we need, if we get creative. Make your own personal fan, designed to keep you cool on those warm early fall days we enjoy in the south.
Now it's time for some good old fashioned fun. Relax outside with the kids, or just look like a weirdo by yourself. Either way, a paper airplane is a great way to enjoy a breezy fall day. Choose from many different designs and colors. With countless mailers coming in daily, you will be able to design your own fleet of paper airplanes in no time, enjoy!

There are endless options out there, you just have to get creative. Dig in that recycling bin, find those pesky mailers and get started. Hopefully the sheer volume of these things are keeping our post office afloat, as I sometimes find 2 or 3 of them sitting in my mailbox per day. So the next time you open your mailbox hoping to find a magazine or coupons but instead find another doom and gloom mailer warning of the terror awaiting you if you don't make the right decision, don't be concerned, have a little fun...
