This is not your average “spring cleaning” blog post full of the same ideas you’ve seen everywhere. We’d never give you stale ideas on The Joyful Organizer.
So yes, while I do still recommend you clean out the garage (because you didn’t get to it last year), clean those gutters, and of course clean out all the closets… this year I want you to focus on something that often goes untouched all year long: Your Digital Clutter. Specifically, your email inbox.
Buried inside of our inboxes are some of our most valuable possessions:
· Work Emails
· Upcoming Event Notifications
You become a less effective person when they get buried by all of the other clutter that lives there. You know, like the Living Social offers, the Banana Republic sale alerts, and of course all of the social media notifications.
I am so happy to bring to you a totally free solution, which I just discovered and absolutely love: Unroll.Me.
In under 5 minutes, this service can unsubscribe you from the hundreds of subscriptions that are cluttering your inboxes and making it impossible to find what’s important (just like those old outfits in the closet that you know you’ll never wear, hiding the good stuff!).
And better yet, Unroll.Me gives you the opportunity to KEEP the emails you want in a daily digest email called the Rollup. It does this by scanning your inbox for email subscriptions. Once it’s done, you’re given an alphabetical list of subscriptions and can “Unsubscribe, Keep in Inbox, or Rollup” each of them.. All you have to do is sign up at www.unroll.me to get started.
Happy Digital Spring Cleaning, everyone.
