Cut The Crap (From Your Inbox)

If there's anything you need to know about me, it's that I have no time. Working two jobs, attempting to be a good mother and wife, a good friend, a good blogger - it all takes time. Time that I'm more than willing to part with, of course. I want to set a good example to Dylan, spend time with my nearest and dearest, and have a creative outlet like this ol' blog. What I don't need in my life is crap emails. 

For years, I've been a serial 'just delete it' kind of gal. If I'm using my phone, it's much easier to just click delete than it is to look through an email I can't remember signing up for - if I even did - to look for their unsubscribe button. Hell, sometimes on my computer it's easier to click delete than it is to find the subscribe button, and these people know that. Even if you find the elusive unsubscribe button, more often than not you need to re-enter your email address, select what emails you might want to unsubscribe from and then give the bastards a reason. 

But no more.

I'm dedicated to clearing out my inbox and making it a place I want to refresh on a regular basis. We spend so much of our time curating our creative spaces - be it who you follow on twitter, what blogs you read or whatever - so why should your inbox be any different? It's been part of my 101 in 1001 Days to-dos for so long now, but I can't stand it anymore! I'm pledging to spend at least 30 mins every Sunday evening to declutter my inbox and click unsubscribe instead of delete. 

Isn't it time for you to do the same?
