Out With the Old

My email inbox is out of control. At this moment there are 3,564 messages in it. 631 of those haven't even been opened. AAAAAAH! Recipes I requested, sales I missed, recipes shared, emails I replied my head, but never actually typed the words (sorry, friends!)

I want to delete my entire inbox to start 2009. Aaaah, I felt relief just saying it.

I don't want to lose pictures or recipes, those are the things I'll have to save or print. Other things I'm worried about are address book updates. I can ask for those again without being a nuisance, right?

I think "empty inbox" has been on my To Do list for over a year now. January 1, 2009 is the day I actually do it AND cross it off my list.

UPDATE: There are now 3,566 emails in my inbox!

Oh my goodness. I have 5 messages in my Inbox right now. That is the max I will keep at any given moment. Don't even tell me how many are on your Lotus Notes account!

xoxo me

Scratch that. I now have 1 lone email in my Inbox.

You best get to deleting!

Okay, I have 1500 plus, and I thought I was the most horrible of all. WHAT are you, Ms. Organized, doing with that many in your inbox?
