On Your Side: Get rid of unwanted catalogs

We all get too much junk in our mailboxes these days and it would be nice to not have so much stuff to throw away. Now, there's a way to get rid of most of those unwanted catalogs that are clogging things up.

It's called catalogchoice.org and it's a fairly easy way to reduce the number of catalogs.

That in turn will help the environment because not as much waste will be created.

You just go to the website, fill in some easy information to get started. Then you pick out the catalogs you don't want anymore from a list. Enter in the customer ID number on the catalog and that should be it. You can even make a suggestion for another catalog to be added to the list if it isn't only there already.

The one downside is you have to go catalog by catalog. You can't just opt out of all catalogs at one time.

Just go to http://catalogchoice.org.

    It is also great to send back to them in their pre-paid envelopes (that cost them to mail) all the offers you receive. I just mix and match and mail back the junk mail in their envelopes for them to throw away.

    I received a letter in the mail yesterday from Shadow Sopper along with a check for 2939.00. I am suppose to keep 209.00 of the money, send 2400.00 to Canada and shop with 200.00 of the money. THIS IS A SCAM. I would like to be contacted about this scam. I don't want anyone else to fall for this scam.
