Papers, papers, papers…dear Readers, Retirement Yenta simply cannot stand all the wasted paper she receives in her daily snail mail. The worst offender is the humble catalog. Once upon a time, Retirement Yenta loved a good mail order catalog, but that was in the days before the Internet and convenient online shopping. Now, your dear Yenta goes online for all her shopping needs, and all these unused catalogs make this little Yenta sad when she thinks of the trees used to make them. Well, dear Readers, a solution has presented itself to RY, and she has tried it out for a few months, and the number of catalogs arriving at her door has lessened substantially. So, Retirement Yenta wants to strongly recommend you check out www.catalogchoice.org. This is a simple and wonderful service. Simply sign up…make a donation, and when a catalog arrives at your door, go to the site, enter your name as it appears on the catalog, your account number for that company (on the back of the catalog) and the source code (also on e back of said catalog) and you are done. The catalog company will be notified, and you will receive no more catalogs from that company…once your requeat has been processed (a couple of months).
Retirement Yenta says: Cut down on wasted paper with catalog choice, and when the catalogs stop coming, the earth will rejoice.
