Project 52 - Week 22

Yes, I know, I'm a few weeks behind but I'm ready to catch up with my projects (and blogging) all together (and will do so over the next few days). 

For week 22, I did somewhat of an 'unconventional' cleaning...of the electronic sort. That's right, I cleaned out my Gmail. I consider myself a non-horder when it comes to e-mail and delete them regularly. However with over 100 sitting in my inbox (which is a lot for me) it was driving me batty.

I tend to e-mail myself anything from links to things I want, songs I want to eventually buy on iTunes, articles to read, and grocery list reminders that I think of as I'm falling asleep. So I'll often have e-mails sent to myself at 11 p.m. with "cheese, yogurt, and raisins" in the subject line. 
I even went through every folder and cleaned those out too. Oddly, it felt like a great accomplishement. I widdled my inbox to just 24 e-mails and finally responded to e-mails that I've been meaning to do for a while. Having a clean electronic space is feeling pretty good!
