    A Holiday Gift for You

    Do something nice for yourself this year — stop all those stupid holiday catalogs with CatalogChoice.org.

    While I’ve been recommending CatalogChoice for a while, it was based more on hope than empirical data.

    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.

    While my phone call/youTube/blog/opt-out letter blitz deserves the lion’s share of the credit, CatalogChoice has played an integral role as well.

    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.
