Sharepoint 2010 - Deleting Items in the list

Last Modified: 2018-05-21

I have a SharePoint list with around 4000 items.  I would like to delete items in this list before Dec 2016.  I was wondering if there is an easy way to achieve this.

FYI:  I have a workflow associated with this..   If i delete an item, it sends an email to corresponding manager.   So manual deletion will flood emails to managers.

Any help in this is greatly appreciated.
