How I Emptied My Inbox in 2 Minutes {Finished Friday} come link up your projects!

emptied my inbox

Over the past several months, our email inbox has been bogged down with coupon offers, expired deals, newsletters, and lots of other unwanted emails. I’ve tried several times to go through the emails, deleting ones we don’t want and organizing the rest into folders, but I just couldn’t keep up.
 
So yesterday I emptied our entire email inbox!
 
no emails
 
No, I didn’t simply delete all, though I did think it. Instead I moved all of the emails from our inbox into an “Emails to Sort” folder.
 
emails to sort
 
I’ve also determined to take care of sorting emails the first time I see them, to keep the crazy overgrown inbox from happening again.
 
Now our inbox can breathe a little while I know I haven’t deleted anything important. I can also find any emails I need with the search feature.
 
And someday I can sort through all those emails…like when the kids are grown.
 
Today's Questions: How do you keep up with your email inbox? Please share in the comments section below.

I'm trying to hold myself accountable to finish some of the projects on my to do list by posting each Friday about a project I've completed.
Would you like to join in? Link up to your own projects below.

1.
Link to your project post, not your blog's home page, so we can find it easily.
2. Let us know what project you are sharing in your title, for example: Spring Wreath
3. We'd love it if your post links back here so that your readers can come join the fun. Feel free to copy & paste our Finished Friday Button into your post. (Just copy the text in the box below the button, click on the "Edit HTML" tab for your post and paste it there.)

Cleaning my inbox is when I randomly choose a subject or sender and clear all the e-mails that show up under my search. So far I haven't noticed loosing anything important.

I use the filters that Gmail provides and it saves so much time.

I also delete emails one by one and I never get anywhere with it, I have over a thousand! It is definitely overwhelming, I am going to try your way of getting the emails out of the inbox. Thanks for sharing!
