Do Unwanted Solicitors Drive You Nuts?
Here’s the thing. It’s your home and your terms.
- Do you need to prevent the ringing doorbell from waking up the baby or sending the dogs into a tailspin?
- Do you avoid dealing with random sales people but will make an exception for your favorite cookies?
- Would you rather never open the door to a stranger to discuss religion?
- Is your family more than you can handle but your friends are always welcome?
Peace in the home could be one sign away. Here’s some I found on Etsy. You can also scroll down to see them below. And, if your situation is really unique, you can always have a custom sign made or create your own. These may not stop every unwanted caller, but they should do a good job with discouraging most of them. The rest can be eaten by zombies.

I will leave it to you to decide how plain, straight-forward, silly, or sarcastic you wish to be.

And, if you prefer to put the message under foot, you could get it on a custom welcome (or not so-welcome) mat: Custom Welcome Mat. Pick the message you want.
I’d show you some more, but I have to go. There’s someone knocking on my door.
