Any ways (that work) of getting off the catalog mailing lists?

Asked by gailcalder (77points) December 4th, 2006
The number of catalogs I get are a scourge and a disgrace. LLBean alone deluges me almost daily. There are some sites that promise to save me the annoyance of calling every store that sends me mailings. Legit?

Yes. For the worst offenders, you can call the company directly and ask to be taken off their lists. Other ideas can be found at http://www.newdream.org/junkmail/#more

Also, there is a great campaign right now being waged against Victoria's Secret because they send out over a million catalogs EVERY DAY. You can find out more about that campaign and take action--www.victoriasdirtysecret.net

These sites sound great, and the price is right. For a few bucks, they allegedly stop the catalogs and also plant a tree. http://www.greendimes.com/index.html http://www.treehugger.com/files/2006/09/greendimes_more.php
