My inbox is immaculate

I am a frequent Facebook/Twitter user and I have noticed almost daily the status updates of friends talking about their email inbox. It is astonishing to me that so many have over a thousand email. Some even in the upwards of 5,000. I get into a panic if mine even goes to 20. I have a tendency to keep an immaculate inbox. I have folders that keep email in particular categories and I do a folder cleaning every few months just to not let them build up with a bunch of useless trash. I also keep my Smart phone on my 24/7 so that my new mail never builds to more than about 10-15 unread messages. I can say that I have a very well organized email system. Now if only my office and house can be that way....

  1. My inbox probably falls right in between the worst offenders you mentioned and your inbox.

  3. I am with you on this. I am a chronic, habitual, maniacal email/inbox cleaner & checker. I also hate to see a computer desktop with a bunch of folders and stuff all over it! My daughter says I have borderline OCD traits but I just hate the clutter!

  4. Same here I always received bunch of emails everyday. I'm not subscribing any newsletters. I'm wasting my time deleting those unfamiliar email.

  5. Woohooo! I've developed a system as well. I am constantly slammed with PR request. The bulk of my emails come from that, but I have labels all willy nilly to catch them and put them where they belong.
