(File) (File)
(FOX19) -

If you're tired of telemarketing phone calls, junk mail and spam emails, Simply Money's Nathan Bachrach has pro tips on how to cut down on the annoyance.

Sign up for the national "Do Not Call Registry." You can add both your cell phone and land line phone. Visit donotcall.gov to sign up and within a month of registering, you should get fewer calls.

To cut down on junk mail, you can opt out of unsolicited offers from many national companies for five years through DMA's mail preference service. Register your address at DMAchoice.org.

DMA also offers an email preference that can cut down on spam. It's free to register at DMAChoice.org and is good for six years.

To end prescreened credit card or insurance offers, optoutprescreen.com can help with that.
