  1. Thanks for sharing this! (Ironically, I was cleaning out my Gmail box and saw your post in my box). Personally I hate having extra and unread messages in my e-mail. I keep my work e-mail very clear, only keeping items in there that need immediate action (we actually have an automatic retention rule that purges messages in the inbox after 30 days).

    I dislike that Gmail has basically 4 inboxes where e-mails can go and it means I have to sort through those different areas without getting distracted (which is a challenge).

    I also absolutely HATE having a cluttered computer desktop and try to keep as few items on it as possible (work requires us to have three icons, we can’t even move them to task bar, drives me nuts!) and I always keep my files on a shared drive or network drive and not on my c: drive just for safety sake, and it makes it easier to access files remotely.

    One point you didn’t make is cloud storage such as Google drive or whatever the apple version of that is, there is so much “space” out there that it’s easy to allow things to clutter up (for some reason, every time I post a picture on IG it duplicates it from my camera on my phone). But cloud storage is great for creating a backup for files on a computer so you don’t risk losing important information.

      It’s great to hear you enjoyed this post Anna! You’re right, there are SO many cloud storage options at this point it would be hard to cover them all. It’s nice to have choices, isn’t it?

  2. I really need to sort out my PC. I have tons of photos and loads of craft patterns that need sorting through. I’m better with keeping my phone cleared up. Other places that collect digital clutter:
    Feed reader saved items
    Pinterest
    Facebook saves

      It’s so easy to let it pie up Wendy! I hope this post has helped you figure out a plan.

    Totally going to download all photos to the external harddrive I have just sitting in drawer for months. Adding that to my monthly tasklist too!
