Quick question. How many emails do you have in your inbox right now? A hundred? A thousand? Twenty thousand?
If your email is anything like mine used to be, the answer is too many. But here’s the thing—even though I knew I wanted to do something about it, I didn’t know how.
I knew I’d miss something important if I just deleted them all, and there were too many emails to go through one at a time.
Thankfully I found SaneBox, and I can’t recommend it enough. SaneBox sorts through your email and moves all of the trivial stuff into a different folder so the only messages in your inbox are the ones you actually want to see.
There's also this amazing thing called BlackHole. Move an email into that folder and you’ll never hear from that sender again. It’s so rewarding.
Visit sanebox.com/startupgrind today and get an extra $20 credit on top of the already free two-week trial.
Check it out today and let me know if you love reaching inbox zero as easily as I do nowadays.
