delete unused materials in materials list

Is there a way to purge the materials pulldown of unassigned materials. I get confused after only creating 3 useful materials in my blend, to have a dozen in the pulldown. Thanks.

When you save your file, and reload it, the materials that are not applied to an object will no longer be in your .blend.

Thanks. So much grief over organizing things in blender.
