This time of year most of our mailboxes are stuffed with catalog’s for various retailers. All of them offering the latest and greatest things to spend your hard earned money on. I dislike getting junk mail in general, not just catlogs. For one, it’s a waste of my time. Second, it’s a waste of paper. Third, It’s a waste of money for the company that sent it (and mine if I happen to order something).
A year ago, I came across Catalog Choice. It’s a great site for deleting your name from various retailer’s mailing lists. All you have to do is sign up for an account and every time you get a catalog, you sign on, find the catalog and have your name checked off of their list. Easy as can be! I signed up in January of this year and I am receiving noticeable fewer catalogs (particularly this Christmas season). I must say, I’m a big fan (and I’m sure the earth is happy as well). Now if only they would offer it for credit card applications.
