How Do You Tame Your Email?

I’ve been reading a lot of the articles on Simple Mom recently having to do with organization. I am one of those people who gets stressed when things are chaotic and disorganized and cluttered, and consequently I’m a total junkie for organization and streamlining tips. If you are too, I’d highly recommend Simple Mom’s archives.

One tip I read about and decided to implement today involved email clutter. I don’t know about y’all, but I get tons and tons of email, and I waste a lot of time trying to stay on top of it all. Even so, I wind up overlooking important emails, and never get around to answering some until an egregiously long period of time has elapsed (case in point: today I finally replied to an email a friend sent me on May 11th! That was over five months ago!).

I’m just wondering how many of you have a system for dealing with email. Do you have a method that works for you? Have you tried anything that didn’t work? Or do you just drown in it like I do?
