Let’s talk about clutter. More specifically let’s talk about the psychology of clutter, what causes it, what makes it so hard to declutter, and what all that extra “stuff” in our lives does to our brains and our wellbeing.
Clutter is a hot topic and for good reason. We have more stuff than ever before.
Our houses are bigger, our closets are bigger (except mine–mine are still 1958 sized!); yet every closet, the spare bedroom, and the garage is full of stuff. There is an entire industry that’s grown up around helping us deal with our clutter from stores that sell organizing solutions, to organizing and decluttering consultants, and even storage units that allow us to keep even more stuff we don’t have room for.
We all want to be more organized, but sadly, on most days it is easier said than done. The good news is that the right tools can make the job easier! One of these tools is your handy-dandy bullet journal!
I know that I am not alone when I try to search for something on my computer and have to scroll through about a million random bits of screenshots and gifs in my downloads folder.
Just like other areas in our houses, the computer is something that needs constant organizing and vigilance.
Our computers hold all sorts of digital resources that we utilize both at work and in our personal lives. From family photos to financial records, the data we store on our hard drives can be very important. But, if your computer’s files are cluttered and disorganized, it can be difficult to find the file you need when you actually need it.
Here are some hints for tidying up the resources you keep on your computer.
