Last night, I gave my e-mail box some much needed attention.  That number?  That was the number of e-mails I deleted that landed in the trash file. 

Ace Hardware
Bath and Body Works
Home Depot
Vitamin Shoppe
Air Tran
Statue of Liberty Cruises
LL Bean
Lands End
i9 Sports
American Heart Association
Michelle Obama

And more.  Hubs taught me a handy dandy little trick that I never knew.  (He was surprised.  Apparently, it is common knowledge to all but me.)  If you click the 'from' on your main e-mail box page, it will throw the e-mails into alphabetical order for you.  It was easy for me to breeze through them, mark and toss. 

I have made this promise before and didn't keep it.  Now, I promise to keep my in-box clean. 

Smiles in my day:
-  Gathering the required accoutrement to commence The 30 Day Shred.  Now all I have to do is to commence.
-  I came home to find K- and Hubs curled up in our bed, with K- reading a stack of books to Hubs.  She read to him for 45 minutes.
-  Getting the Saturday morning activities confirmed and moved a bit closer to each other.  It makes the running much easier.

Have a great day!

Oh my, Amy. 2684?!? Um, WOW.

I have 11 messages in my in-box and was thinking it was time to cull some.

I seem to remember the last time you cleaned out there were an insane number of messages then as well. :oP

I'm glad you did it. Well done!

I promise, never again.

Last time? I think it was around 900.

Part of getting control of it has been clicking on the e-mails to unsubscribe. There are some that I never signed up for. Isn't that the way it is for so many?

I found that avoidance did not clear out the box.
