I went to NYU for Film & TV and had the entrepreneur’s spirit since being a tot when I contracted chores out to my older sister for a profit (ha!). I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving as Co-Director for three consecutive years for the Fusion Film Festival of NYU, celebrating women in film, TV, and new media.

Last week I talked about decluttering your physical space to free up some mental space.

Now, it’s time to declutter your inbox.

Whether you’re of the quadruple digit mailbox camp, or the no-email goes unread camp, you can benefit by unsubscribing from some stuff.

And then when you get around to it, have you ever thought “For the love of all things holy, I wish I could unsubscribe from a lot of emails at once!”

Prior to me finding out about Unroll.Me I was one of those poor souls clicking through emails, and scanning to the bottom trying to find the ever-tiny “Unsubscribe” button. Ugh, what a lame-o I was.

Then the other night I’m reading the LZ Sunday Paperwhen she recommends the uber helpful, some might say life-changing app Unroll.Me. This email unsubscription app has changed my freaking life as it will unsubscribe you from those mailing lists IN BULK. I did it for ALL my email accounts and un-enrolled from 109 subscriptions!!

Do you know how much wasted time from scanning emails I don’t care about, I just got back? If I was spending 3 seconds on each spam email and got about 30 emails a day, that’s 9 hours and 6 minutes every year I just gave back to myself!

Waking up to emails from stores you don’t really care to hear from is up there with getting your sleeves wet when you wash your hands… it may be tiny but it is oh-so bothersome.

unroll meDo yourself two favors:

1) go unsubscribe yourself from email lists all at one time

2) sign up for the LZ Sunday Paper… you’ve got lots of time freed up now to actually read it ; )

Seriously, unroll yourself from all the others then subscribe to this one.


*SIDE NOTE: check out this powerhouse and her awesome newsletter if you aren’t familiar with the name Lauren Zalaznick. I know her because she was a guest and board member of the Fusion Film Festival I co-directed at NYU, but most will indirectly know her for being the woman responsible for reinventing Bravo circa 2005.
