unexpected benefit of the credit crunch??
I have noticed recently that I'm getting hardly any mail via the USPS. It finally dawned on me - I'm no longer getting all those obnoxious credit card offers. At one point I signed up for something that stopped it for about six months but then it started again. So every night I'd stop at the trash can in my garage and carefully tear up at least five new credit card offers.
I'm now getting NONE of those. Plus I even think the catalog quantity has dropped (could be related to cost cutting due to economic situation). I have many times thought what a waste all of that is - since I throw/recyle nearly all of it. I have signed up for something to stop catalogs from companies I don't buy from but even the ones I do buy from seem to have decreaesd though.
