Great suggestion. I have several email accounts for work and personal. it would feel great to have just what I needed it each and to have everything in folders. I plan to work on this. (and still sorting the physical papers).

My email and junk mail inboxes are empty. :D

I save a lot of things to "favorites" to read later.
Today I will go through my favorites list and delete all the articles that I have finished with.

I am having a hard time with my contact list.
Several addresses there belong to friends who have died.
For some reason I just can not delete them. :(

Sorry for the delay on this one. I was manning a booth at a Health and Safety Expo at San Bernardino County Arrowhead Regional Medical Center today. Long day, but a great crowd and a wonderful event!

I will make this one fast, since the weekend is half over now. Today, I am going digital. If you are reading this, it will definitely be something you can do. Many of you have heard of digital hoarding in the past few months, so we are talking today about cleaning up our email on our computers. The age of technology has created a different kind of clutter and this task is one we can all use, myself included. I de-clutter my email programs weekly as I receive over 150 emails each day, mostly spam. If I don't stay on top of this chore, not only will my email program be affected, but my entire computer can be as well.

For those of you that use your email often and have not organized it...ever, its time! If you use Outlook or similar email programs you can even create folders and subfolders for important messages and contacts. I have about 10 categories for my emails, ranging from personal, business, upcoming/past speaking engagements, seminars, and then subfolders breaking those down.

In all honesty, sometimes we just need to hit the delete button. Our address book can be used to keep important contacts with all their contact information. This is one area I could afford to organize a lot more to be honest so I will work on this as well. By moving those email contacts into your address book, you can delete the emails and still have the contacts. Tomorrow, I will be making group contact lists and removing hundreds of emails if not more. Please join me and lets go through those old emails, and only save the ones that are truly important. Try setting a rule to only save emails for a limited time. If you don't need it after one, two or three months, is it really important?

This is an easy one everyone, so spend a little time and hit that delete button! Your computer will thank you :)
