I keep all my catalogs for an entire year! I can't live without them!!! I
hope I retire before all the catalogs go web-based....I just cannot stare at
a computer 8 hours a day.

To be honest, I throw most catalogs straight in to the trash these days
anyway. I want web sites. Easy to use, with all the necessary purchasing
info that I can cut and paste straight into e-mail for our purchasing

Save the trees...
