Eliminate Spam Email and Junk Mail

How much time do you spend dealing with spam email and junk mail? Both at work and at home, information we don’t want or need seems to be creeping into our lives.

The temptation is to just delete the email or glance at the paper mail and then throw it in the trash. What you don’t think about is how much time you could save in the long run if you don’t have to handle the information or paper in the first place.

What is the value of clearing clutter from your email inbox, so you can actually find the important information? What is the value of clearing the clutter from your mind and not having to handle or make decisions about unsolicited paper, magazines, etc.?

The next time you encounter email you don’t want, take the extra minute to unsubscribe from the mailing list. If needed, send a personal email to politely ask to be removed from an email list.

For unwanted catalogs and mail, check out the website www.catalogchoice.org. There you can submit all of your unsubscribe requests in one place. It may take a month or two to be removed.

Finally, think about your social networking options. Change your account settings to receive only what you really need.

Implement these ideas to clear your inbox and your mind and become positively productive!
