It was reported in The Sunday Age on March 4th that businesses are continuing to grow the junk mail category. Growth in the catalogue industry has been reported at a steady 2-4 per cent a year, and this comes when we should be saying 'No' to hard copy junk mail and using the internet to source our Australian catalogues.
On average it is claimed that we receive more than 1300 catalogues and pamphlets every year. Although many people complained about junk mail, 2009 research found that 85 per cent of households use junk mail in some way. Full-time catalogue distributors can earn up to $1000 a week although it's done rain, hail or shine.

The Grocery Run as recently seen on Today Tonight may not actually have the fantastic discounts that were reported as the prices are compared to the off the shelf prices at Coles and Woolworths. Now given that The Grocery Run is bi-monthly I'd say they should be considered as specials and that deserves a whole different grocery price comparison.
