Email Declutter Laugh Out Loud Moment


Email Declutter Alert!

When one of your Email Inboxes has over 1000 emails it might be time for an “Email Decluttering Session.”

Notice I used the plural for Inbox. I don’t believe anyone has only one email account. They are either lying or under 6 years old.

Timing is everything

For me this means setting my iPhone timer for 12 minutes and deleting away in the winning Inbox of choice.

Otherwise I get time sucked deleting emails all morning. It can be very addicting. I’ve learned a little at a time weekly works better for me.

Dating email

That headline sounds sexy…

Sadly, I have no romantic emails.

My dates only text

The headline, in this instance, means using the email dates as a starting point.

Sometimes I start at the top with most recent messages, sometimes the bottom with oldest date. This morning I began with the latter.

Ruthlessly deleting now irrelevant emails and moving e-receipts to the current mail folder, “Online Receipts 2014”.

Okay, whom I kidding?

There were forgotten 2013 receipts too. Possibly 2012, not sure, evidence deleted now.

Laugh out loud shocker

I’m merrily trashing emails, when suddenly, a slick photo of a shapely pert brunette vixen, in her birthday suit, seems to promise me a hot time with her smoky eyes.


Not so much. She’s not my type.

I am attracted to men.

In person, fully clothed.

That is, until we are seriously dating.
