What I’m sharing today is something that has saved me LOTS of valuable time.
Open an email account that is strictly for your bills,
one that is strictly for website and discount card registrations.
Maybe you’ve already done this.
Maybe you’ve found something else that works better for you.
But let me tell ya, there have been MANY times that I have mentioned this idea to someone, and it’s like a light bulb went off.
[And may I graciously say, they are usually of the 40+ generation.]
It keeps your personal email personal [duh.], and spam free! [Yippee!]
Now, if you’re the type that likes to use Outlook (or something similar) that brings all of your email addresses into one inbox, then this idea is clearly not for you.
I’m the type that has to have everything separate or I get distracted.
So, if I sit down and open the computer up to pay the bills, then I just go into that email address, and go through the links, etc.
Nice and simple.
(I even called it firstname.lastname@example.org)
Now the other email is one of the best things ever, because whenever I want to purchase something online, or list something on craigslist/eBay, or sign up for a discount card at a store, or get the daily Groupon, or ____________________ … that’s the email address I give.
Doing this has been a HUGE help to keep things organized.
Do you have any ideas that have helped keep your cyber-life organized??
