Today’s Task: Unsubscribe From Unwanted Emails

I do this about once a quarter in an attempt to keep my inbox from exploding. I’m in a different boat than most. Smaller companies just… subscribe me without my permission to get their information. And I have 4 websites – so believe me I get it all!!! I NEVER wake up with less than 150 new messages. Ever. This isn’t a joke – that is for real.

So, 90% of the time I just check all the emails I don’t have the time to read and delete. It’s like a bandaid -not a real fix. Well, today and tomorrow I am taking the time to opt out and I suggest you do the same.

It stinks. It’s annoying. It’s tedious. But it’s also necessary and you will thank me later.

So, the next time you see an email in your inbox that you don’t want – unsubscribe. Not from my newsletter of course! LOL – from all the others. 🙂

  1. Oh I just did that yesterday! I actually have my gmail for all thing blog and personal related and I have my outlook email for all the stuff I want to subscribe to. The outlook one always get subscribed to extra newsletters so I clean it up every few months.

  2. It really does stink that online websites and companies relentlessly subscribe us to lists without our consent (or if there is consent, the consent is burying in 5pt font in their terms of service)!

    I’m come to accept it. But, if you have any iPhone/iPad or other iOS device, there is an app called Unlistr that crawls and mass unsubscribes junk email. It works and is much quicker than manually attempting to unsubscribe each email sender!

    Good luck.
