Times are tough at the moment. Well they have been tough for a while and unfortunately the situation does not look much rosier in the near future.
I am working very hard on staying on target and only spending what I have budgeted for. So the last thing I need is a bunch of “deals” in my inbox.
I am tired of being tempted. I have succumbed to many a Groupon, Living Social and don’t even get me started on BrandAlley. They all are selling me stuff that I didn’t even know I wanted, how clever is that?
I have now unsubscribed to most of these deal emails. I have used and gotten great service from BrandAlley and Achica but I just don’t need anymore stuff in my life right now. I feel it is better for me to hit eBay when I really need something.
I must say I have been disappointed when I have used many of the service deal sites which is not their fault but that of the companies providing the service. I am still chasing a cleaning company to use a voucher that I purchased in October.
I feel much lighter since I have unsubscribed to the deal sites. Now I don’t have to open my email box with worry of temptation because it just won’t be there. Have you hit the unsubscribe button lately?
