Unclutter on The Simple Dollar and a (sort of) new e-mail feed!

Our month of sharing is continuing in full force, and today you can read more information from us on The Simple Dollar. The article, titled The Connections Between Mental, Physical, and Financial Clutter, explores mindful consumption and the benefits of not running on automatic pilot. Please check it out and leave a comment to let us know what you think!

While I have your attention, I also wanted to let you know that you can now Subscribe to Unclutterer by e-mail. If you don’t read our blog through an RSS feed reader, you might think about an e-mail subscription. We’ve added a permanent link to our e-mail feed in the middle column in the group of links immediately under our welcome statement. It actually turns out we’ve had an e-mail feed since we started the site last year, but none of us knew about it. More than 500 of our daily readers, in fact, have been receiving it! It wasn’t until we went to create the feed that we discovered its existence. We’re baffled, but excited that we can publicly share it with everyone. This link might also be good to share with others who you know don’t use a feed reader but could enjoy our site through e-mail, so please feel welcome to share it!

    Seems counter to the purpose of the site. My inbox filling up with unclutterer e-mails = clutter.

    @Steven — If you subscribe to our blog through an RSS feeder, then there isn’t any reason to subscribe to the e-mail feed … it would be getting the same content twice.

    However, getting Unclutterer content only through an e-mail isn’t any different than getting it in an RSS feed. It’s the exact same text. It would only be clutter if someone didn’t want it.

    Plus, you may get a lot more e-mails than other people. Where you get hundreds, someone else may only get one or two. Different people, different solutions.

    Without being needlessly cantankerous, I disagree with your statement that something “is only clutter if someone didn’t want it.” The task of uncluttering is putting things that you do want into their place. That’s why I put my clothing in the closet and unclutterer in my RSS reader.

    Well i for one appreciate the extra option for delivery of the blog, although i will likely simply continue reading by clicking on my bookmark to the site. :~)
    Chill commenters! Sheesh.

    Enjoyed your guest post on The Simple Dollar, Erin! I commented there, but hope you don’t mind a repeat of my thoughts here.

    Your “mindful consumer” has the same concern as my “thoughtful consumer,” i.e., realize the importance of thinking before buying in order to make wiser choices. I agree that those loss of focus moments diminish along with the elimination of clutter, but mindfulness definitely requires a life-long commitment. Quite a challenge! I’m often frustrated by my failures, but I think it’s worth it to keep trying.

    Also, I had the pleasure of being interviewed last June by finance blogger Nina Smith for her Ten Money Questions series. We discussed the relationship between spending and thoughtful consuming. For interested readers, here’s the link: Ten Money Questions

    Okay, it appears that the link doesn’t work. My apologies and so much for my HTML skills! Here’s the Ten Money Questions link, cut and paste version:

    I’m kicking myself for not understanding how gmail labels work before this morning.

    I’ve shaved my Inbox from 160+ to 45 messages, and I’m keeping most of those right now because I have other, more pressing things to finish on my to-do list today.
