Because we are on vacation this week, I am re-running a few of my favorites, and this one was originally posted in July of 2007. Be back this weekend with pictures from our trip!


I have not opened a phone book in over 3 years. In case the phone company did not realize it, the internet tends to have most information that people need and it is much easier to use than their gigantic yellow book. Rest of the entry here at the original post…

  1. My mother-in-law came by the house the other day and was frantic because she couldn’t find a phone book. I told her I can’t stand them, and haven’t used one since the internet was created!

    Hope you enjoy the vacation time – looking forward to the pics.

  2. Thank you for this post! Phone books are simply ridiculous and wasteful in this day and age. I know there is a certain segment of older people these days that prefer them, but the phone companies should change from sending out a book to every single resident to only distributing them to people who request them. They are such a huge amount of paper when you look at the entire U.S.

  3. I am so sick of getting phone books. I’ve received 6 phone books from 4 companies since moving into my apartment in August. Why bother with them. You can get what you need online. I rarely use an paper phone book, and not a website. I guess I should got with the my dad’s Christmas letter theory, since most are useless, and “use them as toilet paper.”

  4. Look what the US Postal Service is doing to recycle — even they get it!

    Don”™t know what to do with all your old cell phones, IPods, and printer cartridges? The U.S. Postal Service has just announced a vital new service that lets you recycle cell phones, iPods and other electronics ”” as well as printer inkjet cartridges ”” via mail.
    For free!
    To use the “Mail Back” program, find one of the 1,500 post offices that offers special free envelopes. Drop in your recyclable electronics item, and mail it without postage. It goes to Clover Technologies Group, which recycles, remanufactures and remarkets inkjet cartridges, laser cartridges and small electronics.
