Daily recommendation: Unsubscribe!
Click yes!!

Today my recommendation is to unsubscribe. Today and yesterday, I have been actively unsubscribing from all of the e-mail lists I have randomly (and sometimes unknowingly) subscribed to over the years. If you check your e-mail daily, it's not a big deal to delete a dozen or so unwanted e-mails. However, if you don't check your e-mail for over a week, you are deleting hundreds of undesirable solicitations. I found this out the hard way by not checking my e-mail for over a week. So, I have been busy unsubscribing from groupon and livingsocial, Staples, and Ticketmaster. It feels great knowing that those e-mails will no longer clutter my inbox. Yay! It doesn't take long to click the unsubscribe button, and you usually don't have to do anything else. Sometimes, they ask why you are unsubscribing, but those are usually optional. If you have a lot of clutter in your inbox, you will feel so much better following this recommendation. Also, I found that I was subscribed to a lot of Facebook apps, and I had to uncheck 108 boxes. It was sort of a pain, but knowing that those are going to be 108+ e-mails I don't have to delete was extremely satisfying. You can manage your own notification settings here (http://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=notifications). You will be happy that you did!

Agreed. I've also streamlined my email so I get them all (minus two accounts) in my Apple Mail. I need to switch over one of the other ones as well.
