Look, we're all busy. And it's better to be busy than bored. But, sometimes, all that life, work, and everything in between has to offer can eclipse the many daily tasks we all wish we could attend to. You know, like keeping your closet organized? Actually ironing your clothes? Maybe picking up a newspaper once in a while?

We can't make you iron your clothes, but we can help you with that last one — or rather, our friends at theSkimm can do you a solid and help you get your daily dose of news and current events, without the hassle. Some of us might wish we could sit down and read the daily papers cover-to-cover, but that's not always possible — so we skim. We all do it, but the age-old form of harried laziness just got a whole lot easier and more sophisticated, to boot!
theSkimm is a daily e-mail newsletter that turns all the millions of words on the Internet and in print publications into readable, digestible, need-it-now content. It's run by two former major news editors and media mavens, plus it's funny, so it's pretty much our ideal AM read! But don't take our word for it! They said it best: This one-sheet of headlines and soundbites is "for the educated professional who knows enough to know she needs more." Sound familiar? With everything from the day's top story to helpful, cheeky ways to bring the news into your everyday life, this is our new one-stop shop for all things Important (with a capital I). Sign up now!
