Cancel Unwanted Catalogs Online Stop Junk Mail

Guest Author - Kim Lynch

Unfortunately, clutter often finds it way into your home via the mailbox. Junk mail, advertisements and catalogs have a way of expanding once they cross your threshold. They quickly multiply into dust catchers and eyesores.

How many catalogs do you really want or need? Typically most catalogs that arrive at my home end up in the trash without ever being read.

Catalogs waste paper, take energy to produce and end up cluttering not only our homes, but the local landfill. It's not easy to get companies to take your name off of their mass mailing list. You have to track down the right contact information and either write, call or email depending on the company's preference. This process takes something we all seem to be lacking - time.

Catalog Choice helps you take control of your mail and cancel unwanted catalogs from one central location. Unfortunately, they don't offer a one click solution. They have a large, alphabetical database of companies and you must select and opt-out of each one individually.

The best way to use this site is for canceling catalogs you already receive. Although it is not required, you can provide your customer account number and any source codes used to identify your household during the cancellation process. This extra information will help the company match your request to their mailing list.

If you're moving, Catalog Choice is also a great way to stop catalogs from being sent in your name to your old address.

The "My Choices" control panel keeps track of your cancellation requests and their status. Although it's not a perfect solution, having one central cancellation location can be a big time saver.

Catalog Choice offers a pay service called MailStop which is supposed to reduce all types of junk mail. It is not necessary to sign up for this service to use the free opt-out options for catalogs.

Tab browsing is the easiest way to view and open the links in this article. Simply right click on a link and select "open a new tab.". This will open the web page in a separate tab while keeping this page open. It's a great way to view multiple sites at once.
