Electronic Clutter

Memory filling up? How many emails in your Sent File?

Try the 15 minutes a day trick. Spend just 15 minutes a day clearing out old, no longer needed files off your computer. You'd be amazed at how many you can clear out in 15 minutes. I'm up to about 250. Multiply that times 5 days a week and you've cleared out 1250. That will give your memory some breathing space!

It's also easier if you switch up the way you sort your files. If you usually sort by name, try sorting by date, by size or, in the case of email, by sender. Changing up the sort helps change your perspective and facilitates the decision making to keep or discard.
