fax off

I've ranted about junk faxes before. What a waste of paper and resources! After my last post on that topic I called all the opt-out numbers and it has helped quite a bit.

But last week I had an epiphany: why do I have a dedicated fax line at all? I've been paying for a separate line for years. Faxes are hardly ever used anymore (at least in my line of work), as most communications have made their way online.

I decided to do what my husband has done at his office—cancel the fax line! I will save money, and will not receive junk faxes. If I have a rare document that needs to be faxed I can simply plug the cord into my phone line for a few minutes.
