I am curious how you find the numbers you your cell look up, phone directory, online, phone directory cd.....WHAT METHOD DO YOU USE?

We use online pages or google it or our cell phone. Debating with my hubby again over what a waste all these phone directories are that get delivered to our door. So far, this year, we have received 6 different companies placed on our front steps. And on Saturday, we got a smaller version of one we have..... which the print is so small that I need a magnifying glass to read it. LOL Well, I have to tried to give them to the neighbors and see if anyone needed an extra one. So, on Sunday night, I placed all of them in the recycling bin. Finally, an empty drawer. Also, I was curious how expensive these are to make now? Business ads must be very expensive. Someone is paying!
Please bump this if you agree with me that there are too many. Also, share what you do with yours.

  • I use the computer or my 1411 on my phone. I usually throw the book in my recycling bin. But yes it does cost to have a larger picture Ad in the phone book although any business can be listed for free.

  • I recycle the phone books as soon as I get them - I look up info online.

  • There are too many, print too small, and 1/2 the time I can't find the person I'm looking for anyway, very annoying. I actually think the older you get, the smaller they make the print just to piss us off.

  • I actually do use my phone book, but only the small local one. The two bigger ones for the greater metropolitan area we never use, except occasionally as a booster for a child that can't quite reach the table.
