I have to admit that I am a bit of a data horder. It is really hard for me to delete something just on the off chance that I might need it later.
Delete that jpg of the logo for the company that went bankrupt 8 years ago? Nope! I might just need that!
But things finally got to the point where I needed to do something with my Gmail account. It was starting to fill up and I realized most of it was either junk, newsletters I will never read, password reset requests, or alerts that a package was delivered January 28, 2007.
But the last thing that I wanted to do was go through all that email, deciding if I wanted it or not. (I know I don't really have an exciting life but it is better than that!) So, I turned to n8n and built a workflow to not only clean out all the garbage from my Gmail, but to also prevent it from becoming a trash heap again!
