Here’s what’s been working for me:
1. I read emails daily and immediately trash the ones I don’t need so they don’t clog my inbox.
2. Everything I do need to keep gets filed in folders I created through Gmail. I use simple broad categories i.e Prechool/Business/Sentimental so I can easily file away (and find) emails once I have read and responded to them.
3. I recently took 15 minutes to unsubscribe from all of the junk mail I was receiving every week from big box stores. It is such a relief not to receive dozens of unnecessary emails each day!
How do you keep your inbox clutter-free? I’d love to hear from you!
