Is Your Inbox Full of Unread Emails? It’s Costing Your Dearly

Are you one of those responsible adults who gets back to zero unread emails each day?  Or is your inbox FULL of them?

A new study found letting it stay cluttered like that might be affecting you . . . and your mental health . . . more than you realize.

It found people who let emails build up . . . or use their inbox like a “to do” list . . . are more likely to forget about stuff and let it fall to the wayside.  And that can be a problem when it’s something like a reminder to pay a bill.

They found that a cluttered inbox can leave you feeling flustered and disorganized all the time.  And it could even be costing you hundreds of dollars a year in things like unnecessary late fees.

That said, 52% of people with cluttered inboxes claim they like the way they do things and don’t need to change anything.  For the “inbox zero” crowd, it’s 71%.
