Last November I made an attempt to purge our mail from all things junk. This morning I unsubscribed from the daily flood of emails alerting me to new promotions or offering hope for crazy amazing bargains. There were fourteen in all. Every single day we were getting at least FOURTEEN individual emails from different companies/company offshoots and deal sites, many of which I often deleted before opening. Why did I keep them around? I’m a sucker for a good deal story I suppose. However, I finally admitted to myself that I have neither the time nor the money to wade through the temptation to spend in order to save. Adieu email notifications from
– AmazonLocal Deals
– Destination Maternity
– Living Social
– L’OCCITANE en Provence
– Pottery Barn Kids
Our inbox will be a lot emptier tomorrow morning. Hopefully. I’ve got something else to chase after these days.
I realize a lot of people have transferred these type of alerts to their smart phones, so perhaps this question is outdated, but am I the only one that let my inbox be inundated for fear of missing out on something we needed/wanted/could-not-live-without?
