Making Gmail even better

I don't know about you, but keeping up with my email can be a full time job. I like for it to be organized and everything to have it's own place. Here are some tips to help keep your Gmail account as helpful as possible.

A free add-on

Boomerang is a free add-on to your gmail. Go to www.boomeranggmail.com and with one click, it will simplify your email world.

More organization

You can organize your inbox to keep the important stuff at the top and the sale adds and junk at the bottom. Never miss an email from your colleagues again.


  • Click on the gear
  • Click on "Settings"
  • Click on the "Inbox" tab
  • Look at "Inbox sections". Personalize your inbox to have exactly what you want to see organized together.

Filter out the junk

Are you tired of seeing ad emails show up in your Inbox all day? You can create a filter that automatically puts those emails in your Archive. Later, when you want to look at the ads, you can.

  • Click the checkbox on the email you would like to filter out
  • Click on the "More" button
  • Click on "Filter messages like these"
  • Click "Create filter with this search" at the bottom of the pop-up box
  • Click the check box that best describes what you want to do with that email

Enjoy your organized stress-less life after you set up these organizing tips
