Unsubscribe

Yes, unsubscribe from anything that you don't need.

It can be a free email newsletter or a paid magazine subscription. Subscribing to a plethora of stuff will make your life a mess.

Keep things simple.

I used to subscribe to any free thing that I could get on the internet. Repeat this over a span of few years and I was left with recurring junk in my inbox.

Every time I see a promotional email that is no longer relevant to me, I hit unsubscribe. I actually went on to fill up a formal form to stop receiving promotional emails from my bank.
