What to Do if Borders has Your Email Address, Bank of America Wants Your Money and You Are Wasting Your Time

Saturday I got an email from Borders but really it was an email from Barnes & Noble.  It looks like Barnes & Noble bought Borders’ email list and they wanted to know if it was OK for them to send me emails now.  Of course I already get emails from Barnes & Noble anyways, but I was very unhappy to see that my email address provided one last source of cash to now defunct Borders. Since the email allowed me to opt out of future mailings from BN that’s just what I did.  You may want to check your email inbox for a similar email since it looks Borders sold about 45 MILLION email addresses to Barnes & Noble.

On another note, I can’t tell you how happy I am that I do not bank with Bank of America.  All I hear are unhappy feedback from others who do.  If you have missed this, Bank of America is planning to charge people a monthly fee of $5 for using their DEBIT card.  Outrageous! but BofA is hardly the only bank who is moving towards making money this way.  If you do bank with Bank of America, here are five things you can do to avoid paying these new fees.  The banking industry makes my blood boil.  First they get “bailed” by the government (read taxpayers) and yet still find ways to make us pay for it, geez.

I have one last article worth reading to share with you: Where Did All of My Time Go? A Recipe for Reclaiming Your Time for Success.  It has some very simple tips to get you to stop wasting your time on things that don’t matter.  I recently got ready of a major time waster in my life: Skype.  I can’t tell you how much happier I am to be enjoying my time in other ways that matter to me.  If you have a time waster in your life check out this article.
