Just like our closets, only about 25% of email (or clothes) are needed (or used). Interesting you say? . . . So this week why don't we try to delete (or toss) at least 75% of our email in a day! Then create folders & file the remaining 25%.
I admit, I have an abundance of incoming email per day! You have no idea. My incoming email is no joke. Why do I have so many incoming emails you ask? Because I'm a borderline extreme couponist & frugal freak. Yup that's right . . . and I'm proud of it. I sign up for lots of company newsletter/emails. Why? Because they send me coupons, coupon codes & offers that no one else can get unless you sign up! As the emails come in I file them away into my "Coupon" file (ok well most of the time). Then when I know I'm going to that store (like ACmoore) I just do a check search for "ACMoore" in my email . . . and there are my coupons! I delete the expired ones during my search.
I also am signed up for many Organizing Tips emails. Those I file away in my "Organizing" file, with some sub files. The rest of my emails, well that's another story. I need to work on those. So together let's try to keep up with our email daily. At the end of the day, all incoming emails should be either deleted or filed away. Imagine if you kept up with that every day, how much simpler your email would be!
Try it . . . you have nothing to lose but STRESS!
