Do something nice for yourself this year — stop all those stupid holiday catalogs with CatalogChoice.org.
Well, it’s been more than a year and I’m happy to report, the proof is indeed in the figgy pudding.
In October 2007, for example, I received 30 different unsolicited catalogs –almost one per day for you math majors.
So far this October — none, zip, doodley dick.
Initially, I had some reservations about using CatalogChoice as a filter because they lack any serious enforcement teeth.
It’s not like they have an army of ninja warriors waiting to pounce on offending catalog merchants — although that would be really awesome.
Nevertheless, none of the catalogs I registered with CC has fouled my mailbox — who says you can’t get anything good for free these days?
While the economic downturn may lead to a subdued holiday season, at least you can visit CatalogChoice and get something great this year.
An empty mailbox.
