Thanksgiving week transforms the everyday inbox into a warzone. Users find themselves dodging Black Friday promotions, shooting down Cyber Monday ads, and catapulting Giving Tuesday emails into the trash folder. By December 1st, most of us are thankful that the holiday is over. Here’s a few tips for tackling all those shopping holiday emails that just bombarded your inbox!
Some users play a digital game of Whack-a-Mole with their inbox; they rapid-fire delete holiday promotions the moment they appear on the screen. The most straightforward way to tackle those holiday emails is to divide and conquer. Typing terms such as “Black Friday, “Cyber Monday,” and “deals,” into your email search bar, and then mass-deleting these phrase-specific messages can quickly refresh your inbox. You can also sort your emails by date, and dispose of unwanted emails you received during the week of Black Friday. The holiday season reveals just how many stores and businesses have your information on file–and most of the time, we hardly remember providing it.
Time to Unsubscribe
The Thanksgiving week ad apocalypse is the perfect time to unsubscribe from unwanted senders. Maybe it’s been years since you’ve shopped at a certain store, or ordered from a particular website. As you delete unwanted messages and promotions, unsubscribe as you go. This can help prevent future inbox clutter, as some companies are known to pump out several emails a day. Unsubscribing from bothersome senders is a great way to refresh your inbox, and create a digital workspace that caters to your current interests and pursuits.
