It’s Spring now which means that you’re probably doing some Spring cleaning or organising. That means that it’s time to declutter your phones and laptops too.
I spend a lot of time on my Macbook Air and it’s pretty much my life. so regular digital decluttering can improve productivity and good work.
So how do you digitally declutter you ask…? Allow me to tell you…
Utilise Google Drive and Dropbox.
It’s a good habit to be in to save all your files online rather than on your actual device. You don’t have to use Dropbox or Google drive but those are the two websites that I use. I use them to store photos, videos and documents that I know I won’t need regularly but don’t want to lose.
Empty your trash
Emptying your trash is such a simple thing but we all seem to forget to do it and it takes up valuable memory on our laptops.
Have a clean desktop
I used to be the type of person who had a desktop full of shortcuts until it got so busy that they weren’t even shortcuts anymore because it was taking me so long to find them. That’s when I decided to remove all the shortcuts and photos and anything else that I had saved to my desktop. It looks and feels so much better.
Be ruthless with your emails
Check your emails daily and delete or reply to any emails. that way they are done straight away and you won’t end up with 204 unread email notifications on your phone. If you do have hundreds of unread, spam emails then spend a little time just going through them and deleting them and adopt a new ruthless attitude to managing your emails.
