The average American spends 1,700 hours a year at work, and unfortunately for you and me that means it’s a statistical inevitability that something embarrassing or awkward will happen while you’re at work. I don’t know about you, but it always seems to happen to me at the most inconvenient time, like spilling coffee on yourself right before a big meeting.

I want to share a fabulous website that I recently found for organizing tips. It’s called GetButtonedup.com and there are lots of tricks and advice for getting everything in your life in order.

But for now here’s one of their videos for those of you who are scared of your email inbox! I know how difficult it can be to sort through all the mail — but these ideas can help reduce your inbox anxiety.
