Our mail is not delivered to our home, but to a carousel down the street that services about 15 houses. If we miss a day (or six) the mail is taken back to the main post office where we must go and pick it up. One of the reasons our box fills so quickly is because of all the junk mail and catalogs that are sent to us and the ubiquitous "Occupant".
Did you know that there is relief in the form of www.catalogchoice.org? All one does is log onto the site, and follow the prompt to find the and eliminate catalogs you no longer wish to receive. It helps a little if you have the catalogs handy for the customer numbers, but these #s are not necessary to complete the forms. One can also log on in the future to change/add preferences. I'd put off doing this for about a year, not realizing how easy it was. The companies promise to stop sending the catalogs within 90 days. We'll see...

I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego.
