Automatically Delete Incoming Emails for the Ultimate Out-of-Office Reply

Automatically Delete Incoming Emails for the Ultimate Out-of-Office Reply

The next time you're on vacation, you'll probably set up an out of office reply. When you get back to work, you'll face a mountain of emails to deal with. One company is allowing employees to delete messages when they go on vacation—which isn't a bad idea.

The New York Times reports on car manufacturer Dailmer's "Mail On Holiday" option:

The program, called Mail on Holiday, politely informs senders that their messages were instantly deleted, but they can contact a designated alternate worker if necessary. The email blackout is optional for the company's 100,000 workers, but "the response is basically 99 percent positive," a Daimler spokesman, Oliver Wihofszki, told BBC Radio. "Everybody says, 'That's a real nice thing.' "

We've covered how to write an effective out-of-office reply and to make sure you get coworkers' permission before naming them in the reply. If that isn't working and people are still emailing you while you are on vacation, you could create your own Mail on Holiday. You could set up a filter to send all those messages to the trash after your out-of-office message—just make sure you warn the sender in your auto-reply.

A safer alternative might be to tell the reader you won't make reading their email a priority. and filter the emails to a special folder.

Make Beans in a Slow Cooker Instead of Boiling Them

Make Beans in a Slow Cooker Instead of Boiling Them

Beans are an inexpensive ingredient, but often need soaking and boiling. Throw them in the slow cooker in the morning and by the time you get home they'll be ready to eat.

We've covered how to quick soak beans to shorten cooking time but you can put them in the slow cooker in the morning and have beans ready by the time you get home. Soaking the beans the night before reduces gas, but it's optional for most beans.

This is my primary way of cooking beans in the summer so I don't have to use a stove. In the winter, I use a pressure cooker. Either method isn't much harder than opening up a can of beans, but is much cheaper.

Check out the link for the cooking details.

Clean Speakers With a Lint Roller

Clean Speakers With a Lint Roller

The mesh grille on speakers can be a dust magnet. Instead of cleaning them with a rag, try using a lint roller.

When you use a rag, you're more likely to push the dust into the speaker, making it harder to clean. Special "swiffer" cloths should work, but a lint roller takes the dust off and is less expensive than dedicated dust cloths.
