What's the Deal: Decluttering your inbox after Cyber Monday - Alicia Vitarelli reports during Action News at 4:30pm on November 28, 2017.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- It's no secret that Cyber Monday is good for deals. But after grabbing one of those online specials, it can also mean a lot of clutter.

If your inbox is overflowing with too many offers than you can handle, we have some tips to lighten the digital load.

First, if you signed up for email alerts just to get a specific coupon or offer, now is the time to unsubscribe. There's a service called Unroll Me that can do the work for you.

Another tip? Set up a completely separate email account for store alerts to keep them from weighing down your work or personal accounts.

But if you're still on the hunt for good deals this holiday shopping season, here's your strategy.

Cyber Monday has morphed into cyber week, so keep an eye out for continued deals. Amazon, Macy's, Target and Walmart are just a few of the retailers who are keeping the promotions hot through Sunday.

Next, consider online resale markets like Craigslist, eBay and Facebook Marketplace for great pricing on brand new items that people are trying to unload. But a heads up - returns can be a little hairy this way.

There are also services that will keep an eye on specific items and alert you when the go on sale, like Camelcamelcamel.

Finally, did you know that today is Travel Tuesday?

This is when the hotels, airlines and tour companies offer hot deals. Experts call it one of the best days to book travel.
