Simple command to strip Notebook

Greetings all,
   I have a question which is stunning in its simplicity, and possibly in
its naivete:
   Is there a *simple* way to save a Notebook bloated with huge graphics
or output expressions in a `bare' form, i.e., with
all output from Mathematica: graphics, output, diagnostics, etc., stripped out, 
leaving only the structure of the Notebook (text, input commands, and 
structural commands such  as section headings, etc.) intact?   [I am
aware that converting the Notebook to a package does something 
like this, but wish to preserve the Notebook format.)
   For me this problem arise very frequently  and it astonishes me that 
there is not an obvious single command to do this in one of the menus for 
most front ends, but, then, I'm no expert.  So I usually resort to selecting
output cells and deleting them by hand, which can be tedious and painstaking
in a long Notebook.

Any suggestions, or rumors of such a feature in new releases of Mathematica?
