Does this sound familiar – you need to keep an email for a while yet not forever so it sits in your inbox and you constantly scroll through your emails asking “Can I delete this yet?”
Instead, after responding to an email, drag it into a folder titled the current year “2016”. Don’t waste time agonizing over whether to save or delete. Your computer’s search function can find it anytime needed.
- What remains in your inbox are emails needing response.
TIP: Treat the folders like tax archives – as the newest folder is created each January, delete the oldest.
