While I've been busy shopping my heart out this holiday season, I've been slacking on the blogging. Instead of bombarding you with "sale sale sale" information, I bestow upon you, loyal readers, the most useful thing that I learned in 2013: unroll.me.
I spend at least 20 minutes each day deleting email from my inbox. 99% of the emails that I get are messages that I subscribed to. I am so sick of opening emails that I don't even read them anymore. I just press delete like a "delete robot". It got to the point where I was deleting important emails because I got so "delete happy" that I over zealously ignored the good stuff.
About 3 weeks ago, my friend sent me an invite to "unroll.me". This is the same friend that introduced me to Tieks, the flats of which I have 7 pairs... yeah, hence Shopahillic... we know... so I trust her excellent taste.
I don't know who thought of unroll.me, but it changed my life! Basically, it organizes all of your subscribed emails into one daily roll-up email that has previews of each message. It also lists every email you are subscribed to (349?!? really?) and asks you if you want to "unsubscribe" or "add to roll-up". In less than an hour, I unsubscribed from tons of email lists and created my roll-up. Now, I get 1 email a day. Its heaven! I highly recommend using unroll.me
Here's to decluttering in 2014!
