You could start deactivating in much the way that you signed up...a few at a time. You also could create a new email address for shopping and change your profile with the companies you want to keep shopping for. I'm really, really sorry to hear that you are sick.
Hey everybody, just because Irene is retiring from shopping doesn't mean she has to retire from the forum!
Thanks, I pop in now and then and enjoy everyone's posts, just had to stop driving the freeways due to vision problems.
Could you do some phone shops? Or those web inquiry shops? Perhaps when you update your preferences, include phone shops only. Sorry to hear about your health issues but hope that things will work out.
Hope all will be well with you Irene. Like other said, I hope you keep posting. Insight from good shoppers is always valuable.I haven't been on the board all that long myself, but your name is one I recognize and am sure to read your posts on almost every topic.
You might consider creating a new email account and for the four or so you want to keep switching the email address you have on file to that account, at least that will keep those separate while you eventually deactivate the emails from the others.
I'm one of the seniors myself. Hope all goes well with your eye sight. I've been shopping for about 11 years now. I shop mostly banks, a few restaurants and a few misc. shops. I figure I do not shop video or travel, I'll leave that to the young people. No reason why you can't contribute to the forum. My uncle retired at 94 from the police department in Oregon, he was the oldest police officer in the country. They kept him in his own office and he handled all volunteers. He was still getting paid $25 an hour and worked from 8 to noon.
