I am on the list. Not just one list. EVERYONE’S list! Logged on to check email and I had around 232 new emails that came in overnight. Now mind you—I am really not that popular! I wish I was!!!Out of those emails there were probably about 10 that were blog subscription emails of bloggers I follow . I do better reading those who actually have that “subscription email button ” on their blog. That is why that is the only thing I use on mine—it is just easier for me to get the actual email when someone writes a new post. My Google reader is most likely in the thousands by now—I just am not good at checking it.
There was one personal email and the rest, yes, about 221 were stores wanting my business. Some are physical stores, some are online stores, and some I can’t really figure out what they are but they are all trying to sell me something. Did they not see the haul I got yesterday??? Do they not understand that I have one suitcase and plan to keep it that way upon my return home??? Evidentially not.
I really need to unsubscribe from a few but that does not always work. Once you buy something from one of these places you are in the system. Christmas is a prime time for that because most of my shopping was done online—so now I am getting massive emails from Best Buy, Banana Republic, JCrew, Amazon, Kohl’s, Penney’s, Brooks Brothers, Express and the list goes on and on and on. You get the idea.
So I am open for suggestions. How do I get rid of all of these? I know I can go to each one and unsubscribe for each but that is going to take time. Sigh. What a pain, huh? Well, I am off to start the day—-hey wait—a Fab.com email just came in …now I have to check THAT one!!!
Happy Boxing Day!
