How To Go About Completing A Simple Digital Declutter
Have you ever opened your phone or computer to grab a quick file or photo only to end up spending much longer than anticipated looking for it? If so, chances are you are overdue for a digital clean-up. Just like with any other area in your life, you need to reorganize and get rid of things you don’t need. If you are not sure how to get started, we are here to help. We have put together a quick list of tips to help you declutter your digital space, so you can find the things you need quickly.
Inventory Your Bookmarks
According to a recent study, the average person has at least 85 sites bookmarked on their main computer. Bookmarking is a great way to quickly access sites and pages that you visit often, but it is all the more common for people to bookmark and never return to a site or page. Take the time to go through your bookmarks to delete out-of-date pages, sites you no longer visit, and unused bookmarks that serve no purpose. Not only will you free up space on your computer, but you will also have fewer distractions when looking for saved sites you actually need.
Get Rid of Old Email Addresses
Take a moment to think about how many email addresses you have, and then think about how many of them you actually use. Most people will maintain a work email and a personal email, and of course a separate email they use to sign up for online services. All too often many people will create even more emails that they either don’t check often, or forget about completely. Instead of having so many dead emails out there, take the time to close accounts that you don’t use or no longer need. This will help organize your digital life and cut down on the amount of personal information you have floating around on the internet.
Curate Your Documents
Most people have upgraded from maintaining paper documents to saving their online versions. While this is great for the environment, it is still important to weed out the junk every once in a while. Go through your computer and cloud accounts and delete papers you no longer need, receipts that are outdated and also no longer need. For important documents, create labeled files if you have not already. It is also important to back up your files to the cloud or a hard drive, or even both depending on the type of information you are storing.
