Yipit

Lately, I have found that I get way too much email.

Somehow, along the way, I managed to get on every email list known to man including: Martha Stewart, Oprah, Vegetarian Times (no, I'm not a vegetarian), Dog Fancy, Yahoo groups for neighborhoods I don't live in, every sale and discount site on the web (Groupon, Living Social etc..), every Flash Sale site on the web (Joss&Main, Gilt Groupe, HauteLook etc...), every wedding, home design and now maternity store imaginable, and finally, every kids clothing site represented on the World Wide Web.

And I'm sick of it.

Done.

Some people say you should have all of that stuff sent to another email account, or to a special folder, but that would just stress me out. Because I would want to look at it and clean it out. I hate to have unread emails. It's a neurosis of mine.

So, I am unsubscribing. From everything. Or nearly everything.

In this new-found pursuit, I found a pretty cool website that I thought I'd share.

Appropriately, it is called yipit.com

Basically, you tell it what your interests are, and it condenses all of the discount sites into one email, and you can select the frequency. So, instead of getting 3 emails per day from each company, (Groupon, Living Social etc...), I get one email, once per week, summarizing everything available that week.

Genius.

It's life changing.
