Want to know of the easiest ways to save money throughout the year?
Stop unwanted catalogs in your mailbox!
Especially as the holidays approach, I find my mailbox is filled to the brim with catalogs from companies I have never heard of, let alone have ever ordered from. I am tempted to let them stack up and think to myself how lovely it will be to take an afternoon one wintery day and browse through them, with a hot cup of coffee. My home is in need of some extra decor and I definitely need warmer boots and some more sweaters. On the flip side, I realize that these catalogs would serve a great purpose in that my children have NO idea what they want for Christmas and the toy catalogs would give them some great ideas.
Or … how about, we put them straight into the recycling bin.
Each time an unwanted catalog arrives, I visit Catalog Choice and quickly enter the Key Code and Customer Number from the back of the magazine or catalog. I choose whether I want ALL mailings to stop or only want them at certain times of the year, and hit enter.
Not only do I provide myself with a more enjoyable experience when I walk to my mailbox, but I am reducing waste in the needed paper for these catalogs AND reducing the urge to splurge and purchase things I really DON’T need in the first place!
