If you know someone who is an aggressive forwarder (shout out to the Montoyas) or if you work for a company that finds it necessary to post every executive thought (shout out to the fields of medicine, business, education, etc.), your In-Box is in need of an epic purge.
And this is a cleanse that won’t have you running to the bathroom.
The Daily Cupcake recommends using the same philosophy on the In-Box as one would use on one’s closet. If it hasn’t been accessed in 6 months, it can go or at the very least be filed away. Why keep that reminder of a November 2008 meeting? Really. Really?
It also happens to be G.I. Joe Day. The Daily Cupcake guesses if G.I. Joe had an In-Box, he’d never let innane messages pile up. In fact, we like to believe he would have visited the source of innane messages with his faithful AK-47 to silence the virtually verbose. Go Joe!
