Procrastination with a CAPITAL P!

I guess that I am the QUEEN of procrastination! Marcia, from Organising Queen talked about decluttering our emails this week. I decided that I had better finally get that done. I had OVER 1700 emails! It is now down to under 30 but believe me it took time! Guess what now goes on a weekly to do list so that it never gets this bad again? Now I have 2 more emails to clean out. Our family one and my secret sister account! GOOD GRIEF!!

Wow - I have about 300 in my personal inbox - THAT feels like a weight on my chest! I couldn't imagine 1700....arrrggh! ;-)

Aren't we all procrastinators (spell??)?

Thank you (once again) for your kind comments. It made my day (once again:)!!

This I find Marcia is one spot that just accumulates. I did have mine cleaned to nothing but then let it slide and I am again going through them to sort and then get it down to hopefully none in my inbox.
I think you are right you have to really mark this in for almost daily looking after. I read you read the email and decide it you will respond then do so right away, delete- delete it now not later or save it . The one thing I read on a blog this week was only save it if you really really have to.

I am SO PROUD of you - wow, from 1700 down to 30. You deserve a medal.

Set a daily deleting goal and when you start playing a game with yourself, it gets really easy :)

that's exactly what I do!
