The Great American Inbox Cleanout!

I am so horribly bad at keeping my Inbox clean. I hardly ever delete things. I don't know why. It's easy to just click "delete" and have a message disappear, but I don't always do that. I guess I think I might need the email later? But, really, do I need to keep FB...
