The Catalogs Keep Coming
It’s that time of year again at Our Little House. I’m not talking about the time to have the wood burning stove checked or wrapping up the garden.
It’s that time of year when direct mail catalog companies start mailing out all of those fall catalog, hoping you will want to start planning all of those gifts you’re going to buy for the holidays.
They started arriving about a month ago.
I’ve pretty well gotten our unwanted catalog situation under control, so the mountain of cluttering paperwork I cleared out before hosting guests at the first of the month was mostly other stuff.
However, some were catalogs, which tells me that updating the list with Catalog Choice will most likely never end. Catalog Choice is a wonderful website that allows you to input a company’s name, they will contact the company for you, asking them to remove you – or in my case a family member – from their database.
Most of the unwanted catalog we are still receiving are in my mother’s name. She was the queen of catalog buying, especially in the last few years of her life. Still, I think ridiculous that 3.5 years after her death, I’m still dealing with mail coming in her name.
I’ve input three more just this week to our extensive list on Catalog Choice. Of course, the unwanted catalogs go in the recycle bin.
What do you do to get off direct mailing lists?
