Geekette’s Top 8 Mailing Lists to Join…

Tweet DISCLAIMER: I strongly recommend separating your mailing list emails or setting up good filters (either through your e-mail or Outlook.)  They all go to my personal email account but filter into various categories, quickly looking at each – kid offers, home and garden, food, travel, etc. Companies LOVE mailing lists and member accounts for […]
