Most people have a Gmail address. In fact many people have multiple addresses. However you are probably not aware you actually have unlimited email addresses. These unlimited addresses all send mail to a single inbox so you may easily manage all the email in a single place with one login.
Why does this matter? Why is this useful?
Well for starters it helps you track who may be selling your email address. You may also easily setup filters to better manage your email life. You could for example create a filter for all your financial institution (banks, credit cards, loans) and place them into a financial folder. For some services you may desire to have multiple accounts and need a second or third email address. What about your current accounts that you created before this idea? Almost all services allow for updating email addresses so you may go back and update your information.
So let’s look at how this works. For this example let’s pretend you have the following Gmail address:
All you do is add a plus sign (+) and some word or words (with no spaces) which become the new email address. The words could be your bank name(s), services (cable, cell phone provider, electrical provider, etc), newsletters, e-commerce companies (Amazon, eBay, Lazada, Shoppe, etc), social media companies, and anything else.
