I'm not going to add any numbers to my count, but I threw a whole bunch of things in the trash today. The reason I'm not counting them is because I threw them into my computer's trashcan.
I spent about a half hour today and a half hour yesterday clearing out and streamlining my computer and email.
Yesterday I organized my Hotmail account and all my contacts. I marked people as favorites and mercilessly removed people from my favorites list. I deleted email folders that were useless and trashed messages I'd saved that let me know that the shoes I ordered two years ago were shipped. End result: my email will be marginally simpler to use. And I'm only using 1% instead of 5% of my allotted storage.
But I feel better.
And today I cleaned out my external hard drives. I have two of them. One is dedicated to videography projects and one is dedicated to my job, my videography, my volunteer positions, and my blogging. I cleared a lot of extraneous files and folders so that everything is a lot more organized and uncluttered.
My house may not be cleaner, but my computer is.
