Overloaded with catalog clutter?

According to the Direct Mail Association, each year, about 100 million households receive 16.6 billion catalogs. That can result in a whole lot of catalog clutter indeed! Personally, I love receiving certain catalogs, especially around the holiday season. Even if I don’t always purchase from them, I always seem to get creative gift or decorating ideas. Here are 3 things I do to ensure my catalogs are helpful resources, and that they don’t turn into a pile of catalog clutter: 1. Whittle down the amount: As I receive catalogs in the mail, for those catalogs that I know are not my style and/or that I’ll never buy from, I call or email those particular companies and ask them to remove me from their list. 2. Keep current: For those catalogs I do enjoy receiving, I only keep the most current issue, and recycle the rest. I also browse through the catalogs each evening while I’m watching TV. If I know I’m not buying anything from it, I recycle it immediately after. 3. Snip and Save: As I’m browsing through my catalogs, I always keep a scissor nearby to clip the items I may purchase. I then tear the back page of the catalog off and staple it to these snipped items I’ve saved--this way I know where to buy them from, if I wish to, later. These are then saved in a “Shopping” file folder until I’m ready to make my final buying decisions. Back to Statistics, Facts, and Figures Index
