Long story short...my wonderful, perfect, couldn't be better MIL sent my wife a couple of items during her surgical recovery. Now, it appears that many of the marketing companies *thinks* that she lives with us. This wouldn't be terrible, except that she does a little...OK... A WHOLE LOTTA shopping from catalogs. And when I mean a WHOLE LOTTA, I mean it's probably not unreasonable to guess she spends DEEP in the 6 figures on buying CRAP, CRAP and MORE CRAP from everyone under the sun. That doesn't bother me for the most part; thankfully, my DW doesn't have her shopping genes, so it's of no real concern to me.
However, now we are getting catalogs for her at our house. It's not a catalog here or there, it's HUNDREDS of them. Today alone, there were 38 of them STUFFED in the mailbox. I can't really describe how crazy this has become. When she gets her mail (at HER HOME, not ours), it's delivered in the plastic USPS bins. Most days it's one bin, but come November, it's not uncommon for her to have 3 or 4 BINS that are full of catalogs!!!!
I have tried to figure out some sort of solution to stop them from being delivered at MY house, but short of digging up and throwing the mail box in garbage, I am not sure what to do. Are there any suggestions out there for me?
I know there are unsubscribe services, but you have to physically enter EACH AND EVERY catalog you get for them to "auto request" that it stop. I know I am retired and all, but I really have NO desire to spend time to submit 30+ catalogs A DAY to these services.
