But the other day on the Today Show I saw an awesome website that will help rid me of all of these catalogs that go straight into my recycling bin. It's called CatalogChoice.org.
And it is so easy to do! All you have to do is go to their website and click on "Get Started". Then you just set up a free account and your ready to clean up your mailbox.
It's so easy, and it sure beats trying to call the merchant and get your name off of their list that way.
According to their site, The Catalog Choice community is presently 493,221 persons strong, having already opted out of 5,883,249 catalogs. That is fantastic! Think of all of the trees that have been spared.
And it's actually really good for the merchants, too. They get to save tons of money in print and postage. Now only the customers that want their catalog and are looking to buy something from them will be the ones receiving their mailings. It's really a win-win all the way around.
And although it may take up to 60 days to finally get your name out of their system, it will be quite refreshing to not get all of those unwanted and useless catalogs any longer.
