I should probably nuke the newsletters I don't enjoy anymore. By that, I mean doing the Marie Kondo way and clean my inboxes up. By that, I mean unsubscribing the newsletters that don't bring me joy anymore.
Maybe they once helped some time ago. But now, they are becoming just another extra email in my inbox. It's good to keep in mind that we change over time. We might have liked something a year ago, but now we might have different interests.
We could categorise them into different labels or folders on the side, but again they will just become one extra thing that we don't need. If we identify what we don't need anymore, we can already save a few seconds or minutes of our lives.
I'm definitely an Inbox Zero person. I can't always hit Inbox Zero but I can only see at most 10 unread emails on my inbox. And I can only go on without cleaning my inbox for one week. Otherwise, I'll drive myself crazy with the clutter.
I think I've subscribed by myself around ~12 newsletters I enjoy, and the rest come together with the products I've signed up for. However, I think I can still afford to unsubscribe to a few of those newsletters and more of the product emails. It's just the 'what if' or 'just in case' mindset I have for them.
But if there's anything Marie Kondo has taught us — "But does it still spark joy?".
