So, we went overseas for a few weeks and put one of those "No Junk Mail" stickers on our postbox so that there wouldn't be a buildup.  We have been back for almost 2 months now and still no catalogues, which is bad because I want them to do my shopping particularly now that we are hitting the silly season!

I'm not sure how to find out who does the drops in my area, short of chasing after the person if I happen to see them.  Any suggestions?   unsure.gif

See, I thought of that too but a friend told me that when they did it someone crammed 6 bundles in and arond their postbox as a joke!  It might be my second choice!

ask the supermarket who they use. They should be able to point you into the right direction.

we always get our catalogues late (sale started a week ago or so), so I browse online catalogues now. Not quite the same, but at least you get to browse now

I always go on www.lasoo.com.au as they often have the catalogues up before I get them in the mail.

I thought you were going to say the same problem we have which is that we have a no junk mail sticker and have had for some time but recently we have been getting the junk mail put on the ground next to the mail box.  wacko.gif

Contact Salmat. They are responsible for a large chunk of the junk mail contractors. original.gif

I thought it was illegal for them to put junk mail in your mailbox when it specified no junk mail.... I'm assuming you took the sticker off right?
I'm another one who would check lasoo or also I think catalogue central has other cattys in it.

When we moved into our house it had a no junk mail sign which we removed and like you found we got nothing. One day DH saw her walking past and basically chased her down (and scared the crap out of her) and asked if we could please get junk mail again.
