Spent Another Morning Unsubscribing From Emails: Why Do I Feel Like The Godfather?

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.


No seriously – is there ever a true out? Every few months, I end up back on hundreds of subscription lists that I DONT SIGN UP FOR. People just sign me up on their own in hopes that I will write about their product. But that makes me batty!!! I cannot handle waking up in the morning to a sea of SPAM. 9 times out of 10, I just quickly delete it all. But that’s like sweeping a problem under the rug. It’s easier to ignore it.

I woke up ready to combat it all. So, for the last 30 minutes I’ve been unsubscribing from just about everything.

It’s too much!!

Some things I kept – like I recently bought something from Bath and Body Works and they started to send coupons through email. Fine. I will keep that because there is a chance I might actually use that in the future. But everything else?? Bye Bye! 😉

Do you dedicate some time each month to clean up your inbox?
