Catalogs can pile up. Some companies will only send a few and if you don't order anything, they fizzle out.
However, even if you order one thing....you can be inundated with catalogs. This can be especially hectic during the Christmas season.
If you want to dodge the onslaught of catalogs piling up in your mailbox, you can go to www.catalogchoice.org.
Some of the services are free but for $20 a year, you can be unlisted to marketers.
