Another way you can cut down on your inbox clutter is to only sync certain labels. Press Labels in the general settings of the account you want to change. You can choose how far back you want to sync messages in your inbox and which labels to sync on a case-by-case basis. I put an automatic filter on alerts from Facebook, for instance, and then I do not sync them from my phone.

Not syncing labels doesn't mean you can't still find the information, just like archiving a message doesn't mean it is inaccessible. Searching your inbox will still retrieve old messages. It just saves some phone memory and syncing time for things you don't need instantly available every time you launch the Gmail app.
