Tamed my email by Unsubscribing to many emails

I have been diligent the last two weeks in evaluating incoming email. There are many things that I know I will never read based either on the sender and/or subject. I have Unsubscribed from about 40 email notifications and find that my life is a lot saner. I didn't even make a list of things I Unsubscribed, trusting that I made the right choice in the moment. It is really refreshing to have my inbox fairly small, and with most of it actually things of immediate value. I simply asked myself: How do I expect that retaining a subscription to X email will make a positive impact in my life? How specifically is related to one of my goals? Amazed that I did not do this a year ago.

Thank you so much for sharing this!

I'm always signing up for something new, and have a lot of e-mail filters set up. Still, I never seem to read half the stuff that comes in.

I'm going to follow your lead and trim a bunch this weekend. (Weekends are when I do a lot of my decluttering tasks.)
