I cleaned out my inbox

by Evil HR Lady on December 19, 2012

Are you waiting for a reply from me? You probably won’t get it, and I’m sorry. I have never recovered from this summer. (For those of you who are waiting for responses as part of an ongoing conversation, I didn’t delete those emails.)

I just went through my email inbox and deleted 350 unread emails. If yours was in there and it’s important, please email me again.

My new year’s resolution is to be on top of my email. I get quite a few (hence the 350 email purge). I figured there was no way I was ever going to get to them all, and even if I did, your question from 6 months ago probably had already resolved itself.

I’m in a purging mood. I’ve also taken 19 bags of stuff to the thrift store. My family hides their treasures when they see me coming with my bag. Bwa-ha-ha, I cannot be stopped!!!

LOL! Me either. Tis the season to be purge-y!

Since I still don’t have a job and my unemployment runs out on 12/29 (grrr!), I have been trying to clean out my house on the off-chance that I will have to leave it. Unfortunately, I don’t have much worth selling and people are so cheap these days. But it felt good to donate eight boxes of books to the library sale, and to throw out a bunch of junk I’ve been lugging around for years!

Oh, books. Books, books, books. We now have Kindles, which on the one hand, keeps down on the clutter, but I feel bad that I can’t donate read ones any more.

That said, I took about 3 boxes to my daughter’s school book sale and then two of the bags for the thrift store were books.

Books multiply like crazy.

Hope you find a job soon!

Surely I can’t be the only one that keeps everything in my mailbox? Occasionally I’m forced to empty my work email box – 10,000 emails is my record so far (and no this doesn’t include archived emails – I can almost see the astonished IT types as they read this). Typically through I do clear out my emails on rare occasions, once an email is more than two years old I consider reconciling it to the trash bin. As for deleting unread emails – noooooo.

Normally, I don’t do such a thing either. But, every time I went into my email it was bothering me that there were so many unread emails and I knew I would never, ever be able to get to all of them. So, I figured, might as well start fresh.
