Too Many Bookmarks

My bookmarks file has gotten right out of control. It’s currently 85k, and over 450 individual links.Of those, on a daily basis I probably visit 20 (including the 13 in my “Daily Visits” section), and another 50 on a weekly basis, which leaves me with about 380 useless bookmarks.

What I’m going to do over the course of the next few weeks is archive my bookmarks to a hard file (like the one you see now), create a “jump page” of essential links that I can’t leave home without, and then pare my personal bookmarks down to the bare miniumum. If I can get down to 100, I’ll be pretty happy.
