Get your inbox under control. Join the Gmail Zero project to put some bite into your GTD.

How It Works


Contract gmail

Make a pledge to keep your inbox within some limit. Break your pledge once, shame on you. Break your pledge again, and you'll need to put your money where your mouth is.


Google inbox

Every day, make sure you reduce your number of Read messages. We won't count Unread messages against you so don't worry if more messages come in. (Details on our blog.)


Inbox graph

Keep following Beeminder's Yellow Brick Road to gradually whittle your inbox down. Once you get to Zero, we keep checking on you so you don't spiral back out of control.



Beeminder works best when you have real money at stake.

But you can start tracking now, or you can add a $5 pledge from your goal page.
