I have thousands of unread email… yes, thousands.
As a Gmail user, these messages have been squatting in my account… hiding out in my “Social” and “Promotions” folders. Sure, I invited (sometimes unknowingly) the majority of these tenants into what has become an information catch all, but today I reclaim my digital domain.
Clothing… cruises… StickerYou (WTF?)… Hillary (sorry, Hill… it’s not you… it’s me)… all unsubscribed.
I have spent the last 30 minutes going through dozens of emails. It is just the tip of the iceberg, but it is a start.
UPDATE (8/23/2016): It looks as though my efforts are paying off. My morning email check resulted in no messages in the “Promotions” folder.
BTW… I deleted the “Social” folder from my email, since I decided to stop being so social.
