If you carry a smartphone or tablet with you, you can tuck digital decluttering into random moments of your day:
What to declutter?
Remember, you don’t have to delete digital information (in the same way you don’t have to eliminate physical possessions). If your hard drive or cloud service is full, you can always purchase additional storage, but do you want to devote more time working in order to make money that you’ll then give to a company that will allow you to store meaningless information?
You can decide to delete information when you realize that sitting at your computer or picking up your smartphone causes you to feel stressed and pulled in multiple directions. Electronic devices are tools that should work for you.
Emphasize the ease of finding and using what you want while deemphasizing digital objects that aren’t important.
