Friday Declutter Challenge - Sept 26

Oh boy! What fun this week! I decluttered 3 different email accounts! My personal gmail account was the first one to tackle. Wow... over 1700 emails! Most of my craft and recipe ideas get emailed and saved in here to the folders. Took me a LONG time but I got it done! While doing that my spam went from 303 to over 400! Spam I usually delete upon going into the email. Next over to my email that we use for our Secret Sister "Swap" on TOH. It wasn't as bad but had over 300 emails. I archived and labeled what needed to be kept and it is now down to 50 emails! :) Then to our personal email with our provider. This is used mainly for family and friends. It had 12 pages of emails and mostly jokes! GGGRRRR .... so delete delete delete ...Pictures saved, and down to 1 page and going to KEEP it that way!!!! Just like household clutter, this email clutter can burden you and weigh you down! I am glad it is gone!!! Gone!!! GONE!!!!!!

Boy, you're going to be so organized and decluttered!!! You'll be ready for Christmas before Thanksgiving!

I haven't given up on my challenges! I just been so busy with other things to get ready for crafts shows and outside housework!

Oh man. My e-mail stresses me out. It's always out of control and I only seem to declutter once every 8 to 10 months. So sad. Most of the time I just read my e-mails, think about how tired I am, and put it off dealing with them until later. I'm a little bit jealous of your clean in boxes right now.

I hate to get jokes in my inbox. Sure does make decluttering it a lot more difficult. But I had a good week, and it looks like you did, too.

WOW. I'm so impressed. I did have my emails down to 80, but they are back up into the 100's. I keep getting more emails.

Like Amber I haven't given up on decluttering. Just super busy with school and work right now.

Well done! I was just listening to a podcast where it was mentioned that one woman had 25,000 emails in her inbox! Yikes. I wouldn't want to have to go through them.
