So there are a few goals I have set for myself this year. I will only list one today. This one I have been putting off doing for years. It is a form of clutter I have a hard time parting with and well 7 years later it has really piled up. I have made this goal before and did it for a day or two only to give up. So what is the big goal.
Goal: delete a little each day. Example use search to find all emails of one type. Or pick a month and year to go through.
Results: Today I searched for linked in. Search results did not indicate how many emails I had that contained that word. Instead it said 1 of many. I think I deleted over 200.
Now my email says I have 15,416 messages of which 7770 are unread since I opened this email address in 2005.
Decided to live life on the edge and searched for another term (cricutmachine). Found 40 more emails and deleted all them.
Hey this is fun, lets do one more (Walmart). Who would have thought so many people mention that store in their email. I even found a joke. 100 emails, deleted all but 3. Now I only have 15,273 more emails to go through and 7,679 still unread.
Here is the joke for those who really wanted to know. Sorry it did not make the saved list. Not sure why it made this blog post. Be warned I warned you that it was dumb.
