I used to have a horrible mail order catalog shopping problem. But once I analyzed why it was so enticing and pleasurable, I was able to break my catalog habit relatively easily. This is how I did it:
When the catalog arrived in the mail, I would browse through the merchandise and then fill out the order form (omitting the payment information). Then I’d stick the order form in the catalog and put it aside to finish later.
I’d shop to my heart’s content with each catalog that arrived in my mailbox. Amazingly, I’d forget all about them and end up throwing them out when the “later” stack got too high. This worked like a charm. I am now to the point where I toss catalogs without opening them! Doris
