I live in a zip code that is targetted by catalog companies. We get piles and piles of catalogs. I keep claiming that, if I had the right fireplace, I could heat the house with all the catalogs we receive.
Well, since June, I have been recording every catalog received at my home. Check out the catalog accounting page. We're up to 364 catalogs in the last 148 days. That's about 2.5 catalogs a day!!! I figure that's a pile about 5 feet high. For my one home. Think how many catalogs that must be for the whole neighborhood?
