My charity mailings haul

Further to my previous post complaining about how much stuff is sent out by charities in an effort to guilt people into donating, after dealing with all of the begging letters Dad received, I am now better off by:

5 usable Christmas cards (small)
5 usable Christmas cards (medium)
6 blank envelopes
1 calendar for 2014
1 supermarket trolley token on a key ring
3 cheap pens
12 pence in coins
1 small brown stone

Oh, and in order to remove Dad from all these mailing lists it often required the use of a magnifying glass to read the small print to find the information on how to do this. Literally, a magnifying glass. Bonus points to the RNIB (Royal National Institute for the Blind) for being the only charity to provide everything in a nice large clear print.
