I only have a quick look at those selling electronics to stay update with the latest DVD players... etc.. The rest go in the paper recycle bin without being look at.

In fact I will keep the unwanted catalogues, old newspaper and other paper. After they are a lot, then I will sell them. It's a good way to recycle the paper and also earn some from it. I love China

Since moving out to rural area we do not receive catalogues (hubby pleased about it of course!) But I do miss them as used to like just browsing (most of the time anyway) My son gets heaps where he lives and sometimes if I am dropping something into his letterbox, I have to remove all the catalogues first and he says he clears it daily. Yeah right Son this is your Mum your talking to!

hello friend I always collect all of them and have a carefully look on the details if i think it is important in my heart. If some rea really junk mails, i will throw them without hesitation.It made me annoyed when i get so many junk mails.I hope we all can avoid it. good luck.

Well, i still look at them... but i don't really buy anything... i just like looking at the good stuff... and start dreaming that i can afford to buy them... but after a second or two... i would realize that there are more important stuff for me to buy... so after checking them out... they go straigt to the trash can... or give them to my daughter so she can play with them... she also likes looking at the pictures...

It depends what they're for. I recycle them all in the end, but I read the ones from bookshops, etc., or sometimes the electrical shop ones if we happen to be in the market for something in particular. I keep the pizza vouchers for my son, too!
