Paper findings

While De-cluttering

Printed emails detailing meet-ups    conflicts re
solved    ex-loves    old friends reunited    keep-
sakes; years passed    all of them have moved on;
email deleted    paper trail    memories    intent
to keep in touch    best to leave them in the box
with no lock or key less either be broken or lost.

Greeting cards   signatures in blue and black ink;
they write the same things year after year – stay
cool    stay young    have a good life    love and
hugs    love and kisses    tiny testimonies    little
notes of appreciation; thanks for letting me know.


I have a habit of hoarding emails in my inbox for a time the same way I would keep letters. An old habit, I guess. :)

Just had a great idea for a new shoe on TLC, Hoarders: Email edition-lol I'm like this too, I rarely toss things out, especially when I was working, actually got an email telling me to delete some emails before. Nice sentiments here. Thanks for the share:)

I like your suggestion for that show. :D Every time I watch Hoarders I get an urge to clean house.

I'm shocked when I hear how many emails that some people have! Yikes, 1500 Brian?! Aside from my panic--I enjoyed this writing--it was almost like a little muttering to yourself about notes people have sent, what they have said, etc. Sweet...

Oh, I'm always throwing out emails. I get to a 100 in my delete box and just hit delete, if it's something to keep, I put it in the to keep folder.
A hoarder... online, too funny. LOL
