Too Many Subscriptions and Registrations

I’ve been noticing lately that I have entirely too many sites for which I am registered and newsletters to which I subscribe. I easily wake up to 5-7 new messages in one account, 3 in another… and two accounts which I’ve completely given up on because there’s just too much.

I’ve registered for at least 3 or 4 new services already this week – granted, they’re mostly because of work, but I know that there will come a day when I’ll get some nice email that each of these services has updated something on their site, or they’ve been sold to another company who won’t respect their privacy policy and start bombarding me with ever-more “important news” from their PR and marketing departments.

So, because of this, I think I need to start deleting some of these accounts. The problem is, how do I remember all of the accounts I’ve set up on every various website out there? It would be nice if there were some magic tool that remembered all my accounts, and that I could just click buttons to delete the things I didn’t need anymore.

But alas, there is not. So off into the crazy web I go to try to find all of them. And delete/disable/remove as many as I can.
