Today’s tip: Do monthly email housecleaning

Tired of wasting time dealing with a cluttered inbox? Here’s a monthly routine for reducing unwanted email:

Try this:

Once a month go through your inbox and deleted email folder and take care of your “opt-outs.” Unsubscribe from all unwanted email lists and subscriptions.

Here’s how:

  • Select the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email message and follow website directions for opting-out*

*Note: on email from sketchy or questionable sources avoid clicking any links and instead set the message as spam

Here’s why:

A little inbox housecleaning goes a long way toward keeping you focused on what’s important. Some e-letters you enjoyed receiving last year might now be wasting space and causing unneeded distraction.

This way you can enjoy the good stuff: important business correspondence, family messages, industry news, and helpful time management tips from Day-Timer.
