Very nice!! I am just curious Molly, did you have a rough idea how much the flip could save before you made the suggestion?

Based on what I saw being cached in the app 75 GB seemed absurd. My guess was that we would get down to between 5-10GB but we ended up even lower than that which made me pretty happy. That guess was based on what I was seeing being cached and the fact that at my previous company we were caching way more data and our cache size was between 10-15GB.
