The first sign of the holiday season
I picked up the mail today to discover my portion was made up of 7 catalogs and one piece of junk mail. That's what tells me we are coming up on the winter holiday season, the annual catalog avalanche. I know I only have a short period of time to get the shelf I keep catalogs on cleaned out before I get completely buried. I do the majority of my shopping online so I only need 3 to 4 catalogs from a given company in a year just so I get notified of new products each season. There are a couple of companies that seem to send me catalogs every week. It's just crazy.
