5. Ask Companies to Stop Sending Their Catalogs


Have you ever received a catalog in the mail that you didn’t request to be sent to you? Of course, you have. It happens to all of us. And, while you may enjoy the first couple of issues, it can start to get on your nerves — especially when they keep asking you to purchase something.

The good news is that you can stop these catalogs from coming simply by calling the customer service number of the business or organization and asking to be removed from their mailing list. You could also submit a request via email or snail mail. And, that’s it. Problem solved!
