Use Old Catalogs As Mulch

Everyone complains about catalogs and how they clutter up their mail boxes. I say bring them on! First, I check out specials and compare prices for something I would like to eventually purchase. I love to window shop in the "wish books". Then I go through them for any picture I can use with my card making and finally I use them as mulch under my trees and bushes.


In a dry country such as Australia, water conservation is priority. Free mulch arrives in my mail box and I say "thank you!" Many would say catalogs destroy forests, and I agree, but until they stop doing this I will use this product to create and maintain my own forest.

I also save the papers. It get's dry in Florida too.
