June Organization Goal: The Digital Junk

How are you doing on our month by month Home Organization Plan?  I will confess that I didn’t get my entire kitchen organized for the month of May.  But, I will be giving myself a little grace on this one and moving on.

This month, we are tackling the Digital Junk in our house and on our computer.  This task will be a tough one for me because there is so much to sort through on my laptop and external hard drive.  But oh, the good feeling that will follow!

Here is the plan:

              Week One:  DVD’s & CD’s
              Week Two:  Photos on the computer
              Week Three:  Documents on the computer
              Week Four:  Email cleanup (and deletion!)

For me, DVD’s will be easy, CD’s a little more daunting.  Digital photos will be outright torture.  Do you blog?  If so, do you have thousands of pictures you have taken to get the perfect shot?  I will be pairing down the quantity of photos.  Documents:  this is really more organizing than purging and shouldn’t be too bad.  Email clean up?  Well, you may remember how I stand on the insane number of emails in my inbox.  If your inbox is out of control too, be sure to check out my husband’s tip for quickly reducing the volume of emails.  
There it is!  Week by week planning for this month.  Happy Organizing!

(I just realized that I’m late in posting this too.  So hop on your DVD’s and CD’s today and knock ’em out.)

Which area will be toughest for you?

  1. This is a good outline. I need badly to back up our photos—I haven’t done it in years, and I would be devastated if anything happened to them.
