Who needs them? For a brief moment it looks like there must be something interesting in the mailbox but it’s just a bunch of catalogs. There are catalogs from places you shop, from merchants you’ve ordered from, generated from mailing lists garnered by who-knows-how, and worse still entirely irrelevant ones based on purchases of gifts from very long ago.
If you pay by weight for recycling these catalogs become an expensive proposition.
You can stop them. Catalog choice allows you to input your address and catalog details and they send stop requests to the relevant parties. http://www.catalogchoice.org/ No more catalogs strewn around the house. It’s green too (always a bonus)
Do it now and you should see a difference this holiday season
