It’s that time a year again – homes across SW Idaho are getting bombarded with phone books.

Yes, this is still a thing.

Despite The Google being available on every device you own – phone book companies pretend you still want a printed directory of phone numbers and ads.

You don’t?

You can opt out. And it’s easy.

Hit up – give up some info and deselect the phone books you don’t want (probably all of them).

It’ll save you a few yearly trips to the recycling bin.
