Do you keep your Yellow Pages phone books? Or pitch them when they arrive?

    I just got a fresh supply of Yellow Pages books. Three huge volumes in a plastic bag. It's my 3rd shipment this year, from various suppliers, I assume. Like the others, these are now in the trash.

    I don't want them. I just use the web. I've asked a few people I know and they don't use them either. So I'm just curious...

    Do you use the Yellow Pages books? Do you keep them when they are delivered to you?

    I pitch them when I find 3 or 4 tossed in the back of a closet. Yep, unused.

    Hi ...
    Since I'm from a smaller community our white and yellow pages are in the

    same book, so yes I keep it...I use it lots....

    I don't' have a home phone number so I don't automatically get a yellow page book.

    However, the building received a large supply and are available if I want. I don't want any phone books and have eliminated even the old ones from home.

    They are starting to stack up. I barely get halfway through reading one when the new one arrives.

    They just sit in the closet. I never use them. I just punch the business name, city, state in a google search and there it is.

    Same with the newspaper. I refuse all the sales pitches for the local paper I get over the phone. I get my news off the web.

    Are you sure you are not talking about your wt & awake subscription?

    Straight in the re-cycling. Who needs these when you can find everything faster on the internet?

    LOL, Good one. Even when I was an elder I seldom read all each issue.

    I get two or three every year.

    I keep just one - the larger one that is from my own phone provider. Toss the others.

    Historically, I end up using it two or three times during the year. My internet connection is not always too reliable.

    My home phone - only use it for information! and it's available incase of power outage.

    Otherwise, I rely on my cell phone and websearches.
