We received an email from one of our members, Tiffany Simonsen, who has been tracking the success of Catalog Choice for her and her family every year since 2007. With Tiffany's permission, we'd like to share her story with you.
Happy New Year!
This email is to thank you for your great service and share a little bit of the difference you have made for my family.
As part of an education program I was running, I registered my first choice for stopping catalogs on 10/26/2007. I kept track of all the catalogs our house received in November and December. I've since transitioned to a different job, but I've continued to use your service to help stop the catalog clutter. (I've also continued to keep track because I was curious about our progress.)
When going through the catalogs in our mail we separate out the catalogs that need to be entered into Catalog Choice, tear off the necessary information and recycle the catalog. Every few weeks, sometimes once I month, I then login to our account and update our choices.
Each year we've been pleasantly surprised to see the number decrease and this year the 'wow-factor' was so fantastic, we needed to tell you about it.
Catalogs received during peak holiday mailing season:
'07 '08 '09 '10 '11
Nov 97 83 66 55 29
Dec 42 42 32 26 16
We would have never accomplished this on our own. It takes a little effort and persistence, but it is most definitely paying off. Thank you so much!
Have you been tracking the progress you've made with Catalog Choice? We'd love to hear your story as well.
