Subscription Exhaustion

I’ve been feeling this same exhaustion for quite some time. Last year, I made a concerted effort to remove what John Roderick calls “eels”–those small things that attach themselves to your bank account and siphon money out slowly over time. When I made a full list of everything I was paying recurring monthly fees for, I was shocked. It can get out of hand quickly.
