Unsubscribe Me

I decided to finally actively clear out my personal inbox.  It would be so much easier for me to just start a new personal email but I decided that I’m just going to clear out my inbox and start unsubscribing from certain mail listings.  I get literally hundreds of emails every day and it’s gotten a bit ridiculous. As I type this I am staring at the 832 unread emails notification icon.

The other day I received a contract job offer and I almost missed it because I had other emails sitting in my inbox waiting to be read. I mean, that’s additional income that I almost didn’t take advantage of because I’ve gotten so used to glazing over my inbox waiting for an interesting subject line to pop up. I like advertisement I do, I like catching awesome deals at stores/shops I regular frequent (online as well as offline) however, there are just some subscriptions I know I don’t need so from here on forward I am actively unsubscribing. Wish me luck.

Do you have a clean inbox? What are some of your organizing tips when it comes to emails?

  1. I don’t get that many e-mails in a day. I try not to subscribe to too many things just because I don’t want to end up with that exact same problem. Right now, I am keeping my eye out for an important e-mail that I don’t want to miss and getting too many junk e-mails is something that I simply can’t afford right now. I also make sure that I am checking my e-mail on a regular basis as well. If I don’t check my e-mail daily, then I make sure I’m checking it every other day at the very least. Like I said, I’m keeping my eye out for certain e-mails that are important to me and it would be a shame if I missed them.

  2. I get a ton of emails everyday – too many for my liking! I use multiple filters to clean out the junk and I’ve set up certain trigger words that automatically make the emails go to spam. However, if it’s sent from a personal address, it still goes to my inbox to make sure that any mail that is personally sent to me, I get. I’m also on a lot of email lists; that’s no help! I top out at about 1,500 emails daily. I have to turn off my iPhone’s email notifications sometimes because it just annoys me way too much! Do you have any tips to share Sharon? I’d love to hear them! 🙂

  3. For me on Gmail, the best way to separate is them to put them in different categories, an example of this is because I get emails from work, then I put them in a work folder. This is to ensure, that personal and work emails don’t get jumbled together because in the past, I have always accidentally sent the wrong reply to the wrong email. I never to try and subscribe to many things, as that can really clutter your inbox, which is something that you don’t want at all. I’m always making sure, I look at my emails daily, in case something important does come up.
