the past, the present and the pack rat.

I was checking email tonight (I know its late and I should REALLY be in bed but...) and I glanced down to see that I had 1492 emails in my Inbox.
Yes, you read that right
One thousand Four Hundred and Ninety Two emails just sitting in my Inbox.
Do you think its time to finally delete them? They must go back years... *sigh*
Its sorta like cleaning out the garage or an attic but with less hard labor. (although my fingers might have a little something to say about that.)
What if I need to refer back to something one day? Or forget my password on some strange website that I signed up for years ago? Or photos of my niece that I have yet to save to my hard drive?

Here's to pack ratting even on the computer! (Will it ever end?!) CHEERS!

YOu Do NOT have 1000 plus emails that are not junk in your box. You need help. Serious help. j/k. If any happen to be from me, throw those suckers out and I'll repeat anything of value should you forget anything. he he.

Yiles that is a lot of e-mail!!! You changed your name!! I had to come and figure out who Lala was!

I had a problem with my in-box as well. Well not quite to that degree. I created a folder called finished and just put anything I might need like passwords etc in that. Nothing like clearing your head by using that delete button!

Ha! I just did this... except I deleted 10K emails. Oh my... I have a few yahoo groups and health group emails and they go into their own folder so I just read and go away... instead of deleting.

it does feel good doesn't it. :)

I was just looking at mine it is around 350 and thinking I needed to clean it out.
I made a file for the ones that have passwords and stuff. that way I have them and can clean out my box.

Wow that is a lot of email! I have found that my disorganization spills over to my computer. All my files could use a real system. I guess some things are just hard to change.

WOW! I just recently did an overhaul on my inbox but I was no where near as high as 1400.

It's so hard to get behind. I just went out of town for 4 days and you'd think I'd been gone for a month the way things stack up!
