What’s worse – physical or digital clutter?

Sorry, that was a trick question! While digital clutter is generally only visible to ourselves, it can take the same toll as physical clutter on our emotional health and well-being not to mention our daily productivity.

Purging and organizing data and files helps to ensure that both you and your devices are happier and healthier.

I have to admit that electronic organizing is not my favorite thing to do. Give me a closet and I’ll drop everything to organize it. But I typically only organize data when it becomes a problem like when I can’t save any more photos because my device is full. (Who knew that text messages took up that much room?)

So imagine my surprise when I got an email last week offering to share an article on how to downsize and organize digital clutter. Why yes, thank you very much!

The article offers some well-researched advice and strategies to reduce and organize electronic files on your computer and phone. Learn how creating folders is a simple way of sorting and organizing files so you can find them in seconds. You’ll also learn what files you can purge, how to set up a digital decluttering schedule, and options for backing up important files and documents.

If you’re anything like me, this is the kind of thing you keep putting off because you don’t have time or you’re too tired to deal with it. You can keep putting it off or do something today that your future self will thank you for…click on the image below to read the article.

Feel free to leave a comment below if you want to share your own tips and experiences with downsizing and organizing your electronic files. Or post a question and I’ll do my best to answer it.
