  1. With the exception of Firefox being your browser of choice, your opening confession could easily have been my own. I appreciate your candor and will join you in striving to cut the communication clutter in my inbox. I like to use Google Keep to help me clear my browser at the end of the day (I sort the open tabs onto several lists, like links to come back to, links to share, videos to watch…). A full voicemail box has not been an issue for me so far in my biz, but will keep tip #3 in mind for future reference!

    Sharing this with my community!! Thank you!!!

      Yes Bonny,
      We all have our browsers of choice. Chrome crashes my PC a bit too often for favorite use. LOL. I’ve not had full vmail box as I do clean it out often but have called those who do, ugh!

      Thanks for sharing, trust you included the source with a link.

      Hugs, Melissa

    Good points! I use Firrefox and Opera (although admittedly I have never been high-powered enough to rack up that many open tabs at once).. To save paper while saving information quickly, doPDF or Print to PDF add-ons help me retain newsletters or key blog postings for future reference. I edit file titles to suit my own desktop file-and-search system.

      Arche,
      Sounds like you have a system that works for you, that is terrific. I prefer to avoid more PDF’s as I have so many already coming in through various sources.

      Hugs,
      Melissa

    I’m not a very organized person by heart, so I need a system.

    First of all, I try to keep in mind the 2 minute rule (“if it takes less than 2 minutes, do it right away”) which pretty easily applies to most email.

    Gmail would have that starring system and smart folders which would make this easy, but I can’t direct my primary emails there for some reason (gotta fix it asap). Evan Carmichael has a video explaining the gmail if you’re interested.

    When it comes to browser windows, I have a system I could call “multiple browsers” (how creative LOL).

    Firefox is dedicated to research and studying,
    Chrome to social media and
    Safari to biz maintenance; email, my websites etc.

    So, when it’s time to mingle, I open Chrome, in which I only bookmark SM related stuff, and I do my thing and close it.
    Same with every other task.

    When it comes to Firefox, it has 4 bookmark folders:
    – services I use
    – interesting people
    – might be useful
    – personal

    As I bookmark I rename the link with the takeaway keyword from it.

      Eve,
      I am very familiar with Gmail and have multiple accounts that I use for subscriptions. I simply don’t like their filing system and tried to integrate Outlook and it didn’t work well. Some things aren’t worth relearning since using email for 20 years! I have over 50 bookmark files, yes, it is a challenge to keep up. Good on you for just 4.

      Hugs,
      Melissa
