I know it doesn't seem like much, but we're talking over 700 messages not even counting the bulk mail folder!
I've had that email address for at least 5 years & it is the one I use when signing up for stuff online or for entering contests, so it gets put on a lot of mailing lists. Most of them that get into the inbox I can tell where they are from. I enter a contest & then I start getting newsletters from that company. But after so long it had started to get kind of out of control.
So I went through, deleted most everything. Looked at the other stuff that might have been important. Deleted most of that too. Actually finally made a folder to store things like password emails & product registration emails. Damn. It's done. Now I just have to check it daily for a while and start unsubscribing as stuff comes in so that it doesn't overwhelm again...
Also, I bought paint today to paint the stairwell. Instead of a lovely shade of mint green, the stairwell to the basement will be Moonlit Yellow!
And my dad came over today and hooked up the stove to the gas line so frozendragon can cook downstairs now instead of having to haul stuff upstairs.
