    Angry Contacts memory usage

    I recently received a notification on my phone that my memory usage is running low - i said, oh no, I must have my picture quality too high and its filled up, NOPE!

    I go through settings -> Storage -> Application manager - and it populated a list of memory usage from my applications.

    At the top of the list at a WHOOPING 6.59 GB is Contacts Storage.

    I have 191 contacts. Of which ~60 or so are phone numbers I've entered. The remainder are a random selection of facebook friends, and emails from my gmail. Not just contacts from my gmail, but random one-time contacted emails. This happened after the last software update.

    Anyone have any idea how/why this occurred and a possible solution?
