Because you can't see digital information (except for a few words listed on the screen), it can become invisible clutter.
It might seem to be a waste of time to declutter digital files, after all, they don't claim any physical space. However, poorly named files, documents you'll never need, and relying on the search bar to locate misplaced information, can add stress when the load of information seems out of control.
Throughout the year, I'll return to taming invisible, digital clutter. For today, look at your emails.
Do you move emails that you want to keep for reference into digital folders? Clean through these folders, keeping what you need and deleting what you’ll never need to look at again. If you are concerned about deleting this information, question how you’ll use the information in the future.
And, if you don't store emails in digital folders, consider how you can organize some of the information you want to keep for reference in this way.
