Curing the Catalog Chaos

At this time of year, we are all inundated with catalogs. Everyone is trying to make their pitch and sell you that special something for that special someone. I, myself, receive several catalogs that feature kid’s toys and my children are past the toy stage. I also receive multiple catalogs from L.L. Bean and J. Crew and there isn’t a preppie person in my family. By ordering items on the internet, I know that I get my name on mailing lists that eventually will fill my mail box with all this paper that I am not interested in.

Well, here’s what I do to counteract these mailings. I deposit all the catalogs in a pile, as they enter my home. As soon as the holidays are over (and the catalogs slow down) I visit a great web site Catalog Choice. Here you can opt-out of mailings and stop solicitors from contacting you. You will need the contact information on the back of each companies catalog to opt-out. Catalog Choice makes it simple and secure to opt-out of unwanted advertising material and protect your privacy.

It’s great! You will see your mail pile reduce in size and do something small for the environment all at the same time.
