The big pile of catalogs in the photo consists of those received in 2011. I do love getting them, but there are so many, and often two or more of each! We live in a small house and the only way to keep from being buried alive by “stuff” is to stay on top of things.
I decided it was time to recycle the old catalogs and put this year’s editions in the magazine holder that I keep for that purpose. Some of the 2011s are awfully pretty (the Baker catalog is an example) but I just can’t think of a reason to keep them with the 2012 versions ready to take their place.
This is the roster for 2012, neatly stored in the magazine holder. Now all I have to do is make the time to peruse and order. My recycling bin is going to be very heavy this week.
