Is your Inbox a place where good emails go to die? Do you cringe at the thought of digging up a specific conversation? Would you love to have a way to know who has and has not replied to your SUPER IMPORTANT EMAILS? Look no further - I've compiled my favorite tips that help me manage my inbox without chasing the dragon of "Inbox Zero."
Please note: These tips are created for Gmail Users, and specifically those people using Chrome, so proceed with caution, Outlookians.
Phase 1: The Purge.

Whew! Alright, that's the hard stuff. Everything else below is meant to polish up your experience so you might even enjoy handling emails once in a while
Phase 2: Fine-tuning
I am a die-hard fan of Chrome extensions, and use so many that I need at least 12GB of RAM to even operate. Please note - the more extensions you have, the more of a toll it will take on your machine. The good news is: everything I list below is absolutely free for normal use by a single user.
