They're Baaaack!

Following up on this post from earlier in the month, I thought I'd show you the mail we received at the Beale house yesterday.

Yep, all catalogs.

It was the same the day before and it will be the same today. This deluge was bad enough before Christmas, but now all the crap I didn't buy the first time around is on sale, so retailers feel compelled to make that final push.

I never buy from catalogs anymore but I do buy online, which I guess is the same thing from the retailer's perspective. But I'm seriously reconsidering these online purchases, knowing that it will only result in another deluge of catalogs four or five times a year.

If a person buys stuff online, shouldn't they be able to opt out of receiving catalogs from that retailer?
