Nearly 80 percent of e-mails sent worldwide are spam and according to the National Technology Readiness Survey and Maryland’s business school, the average time spent per day deleting spam messages is 2.8 minutes. If you do the math, the average person wastes several hours each year deleting junk emails. Some of you just ignore them (like my husband) and your inboxes are cluttered up with so much junk that you can’t find those important emails when you need to. Others of you (like my mom) gets hundreds of spam emails each day and spends five or more minutes each day just cleaning out the junk before being able to get to the good stuff. Oh so much time wasted each day searching, sorting and deleting emails.
Time Treasure Tip: spend that 2.8 minutes each day unsubscribing, blocking, and/or reporting those unwanted emails a s spam. Before you know it you will have a much cleaner inbox and will be spending a whole lot more time on the important ones.
