That catalog deluge just seems to get worse. I try not to order items from catalogs at all but our mailbox remains stuffed.
Recently I discovered www.catalogchoice.org which I hope will bring relief to all.
Despite a bit of trouble registering on the super-sensitive site I managed to begin a list of "don't send" catalogs. This is done alphabetically and after getting through "C" I decided to enter unwanted names as they come in the door. Right now should be a perfect time to capture names, just before the holidays.
Although some companies seem to welcome such info; others are either unaware of the program or non-committal, so one is taking something of a chance. After 12 weeks from sign up you should notice a diminution of paper.
