E-mail Organization Tip

Just a quick post today, but it's an informational one. I don't know about you but I get a ton of e-mails every day! They're coming from comments on blog posts, pinterest alerts, giveaways I'm helping in, sold product e-mails, Groupon , food websites I'm subscribed to, etc. It's really bad even if I'm gone for a day, I could have 40+!

So I used to just open and read or delete. But then my inbox had 100+ e-mails and if I was looking for a specific one, even using the search feature didn't help. And then I decided to do the one touch rule. And now I have 0 in my inbox. For real!
See? Inbox at 0!

The one touch rule you may ask? Yes, one touch. Well maybe it's two, because you have to click to open...so let's say the one touch rule after opening an e-mail :)

Once I open an e-mail, I do one of two things. It either 1) Gets deleted or 2) Gets put in a folder. Simple as that. Do I have a ton of folders? I have several but they're organized. I've got one for banking, my blog, giveaways, TBA, TN, TpT, recipes, etc. And now it's so easy to find what I need!

Sometimes I do slack, but I try not to have more than 20 in my inbox because then things will get lost.

Am I weird for doing this? Or do you do this too?



  1. I do this too. It makes things so much easier to manage, especially when I feel keeping emails can sometimes be important. :)
