"Take the garbage out #5&**!!
I suppose there isn't a parent anywhere that hasn't yelled at their kids to take the garbage out.
I don't do garbage, with 5 kids and a hubby, just not my thing.
But, today I did, not my house garbage but.......
My computer garbage or Trash.
I deleted over 40,000 emails in my garbage trash can.
Every Sunday night I clean up my Inbox, and NO I have never gotten to that mythical land call "Inbox 0" but I do feel more organized starting a new week.
I have a folder for each of my Buyers and Sellers in Ann Arbor. Every bit of communication with my client is dragged into the clients folder. When the transaction is CLOSED or SOLD, I drag it into a folder called PAST Clients.
In each clients folder there is anywhere from 99 to 598 emails, the most being when it is a Short Sale.
I regularly delete my Junk Mail but have never really wanted to delete my TRASH because many times if I am searching for something it pops up in TRASH.
Today I did the dirty deed.
The easiest way to Empty your trash is to sort your emails by FROM. (see the graph below)
The email program you use with sort them alphabetically like: Active Rain Notices, Groupons, Tiger Lead Notice, Face Book, Twitter, Lowes, etc... basically if you hit FROM in Outlook or the Apple Mail Toolbar.
Then you can delete them all at one time.
Nothing like football to get me into cleaning, except when Michigan is playing. GO BLUE!!
How do you manage your email?
I feel like Missy the Maid.....
