She has guest posted for me before – a while back she helped us out with a post on managing the mail.  now she is back with some new tips.  Digital life is complicated – so Seana has a great 30-day challenge to help you get your devices and your entire digital life under control!  This is a great theme for Spring.  Let’s do a bit of Spring cleaning and clear out those old photos, unused apps, and all those obsolete charges hanging around your house.

Professional organizer Seana Turner is joining us to talk about Spring cleaning for our digital devices.

30 Day Digital De-Clutter Challenge

Modern life is complicated. The advent of digital technology has brought wonderful capabilities, but also created new time and organizing challenges. In addition to physical clutter, we now face a build up of digital debris. Since much of this doesn’t take up visible space, we tend to ignore it.

However, having an organized digital life is important: it keeps your devices running efficiently, and enables you to effectively access and backup your digital information.

Many clients have expressed frustration with getting their digital lives in order. In response, I created this 30-day challenge to ease the process. Each day describes one small project to move you toward digital clarity. I’ve added in links for helpful tools along the way. The challenge was originally designed to start on a Monday, but you can begin whenever it is convenient for you.

I hope you find this process both rewarding and empowering.
