Manage Your Inbox

Personally, I have to have an organised inbox, it brings me comfort that I can find anything at the click of a button. Managing your email inbox is hard! Especially when you’re getting so many on a daily basis. Here are some tips to help you stay on top of your inbox.

1. Hit that delete button! We all love a thank you email, but it does not have to sit in your inbox when it’s taking up space!

2. Unsubscribe from unwanted subscription emails! I do not need to know when the likes of Buzzfeed is launching a new quiz, and I don’t think you do either.

3. Use those file folders! They come in handy when you need quick access to certain things. In my inbox you will see things like a folder for expenses and a folder for wanted subscriptions.

It is not an easy task to manage your inbox, Rome wasn’t built in a day and cleaning up your inbox is the same. But I hope these tips help you get the process started. You can find some additional tips on cleaning up your inbox here.

Organisation is about being productive, not about getting everything done in one day!
