#WorkLifeHack 23. #Unsubscribe: Remove Yourself From Email Lists You Don’t Read
Reducing email clutter by unsubscribing from newsletters or promotional emails you don’t read can make your inbox more manageable.
1. Identify Unwanted Emails: Look through your inbox for subscriptions you no longer find useful.
2. Use Unsubscribe Links: Click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link usually found at the bottom of these emails.
3. Bulk Unsubscribe Tools: Some email services offer tools to unsubscribe from multiple lists at once.
4. Set a Reminder: Periodically review your subscriptions and clean them out.
5. Be Selective: Moving forward, think twice before giving out your email or subscribing to newsletters.
Time and Money Savings: Navigating through a cluttered email can easily consume 5-10 minutes of your day. Unsubscribing from irrelevant lists can save you about 2.5 to 5 hours a month.
Financially, less clutter means fewer temptations to spend on promotions or deals you didn’t need in the first place. Assuming you resist one $20 unnecessary purchase per month, that’s a savings of $20.
Unsubscribing from email lists you don’t read can save you 2.5 to 5 hours per month and around $20 by reducing impulsive purchases prompted by email promotions.
