One way to make sure you do not forget about your old flags is by subscribing to the Stale Feature Flags Report.

Zombie (Stale) Feature Flags Report

This report is an automated email sent to you regulary that warns you about unchanged feature flags.

You can decide if you want the report to scan all the feature flags that you have access to, or those only that you have explicitly "watched" by clicking the little eye icon on them.
