Inbox Zero


I’ve heard vague mention of “Inbox Zero” in the last few years, but haven’t given much thought to it… until now.

At, Merlin gives you a handful of tips that help you get (and keep) your inbox down to zero. Here’s a few things that I am going to do starting now:

  • create way more filters so that unimportant emails (like subscriptions) skip my inbox
  • delete what I don’t care about (this is way harder than it sounds)
  • spend a few minutes each day maintaining my email account
