The WHY of Digital Declutter CEO

My desk is spotless, like a dreamy Instagram photo, but inside my laptop, my phone, my cloud space, it’s a huge mess!

I’ve slowly gleaned the best info to help me organize home life. I clean like a boss with tips I learned from FlyLady and other simple living sites.

My home is organized methodically, in small bites, through Taylor Flanery’s @HomeStorage101 on Twitter and her great #declutter365 calendar!

Between my international life of 30 moves and a bit of Mari Kondo’s Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up, I have a reasonably minimum amount of stuff.

Yet, I have yet to find anything to truly help me organize my digital life. So I’m building one from scratch for me, for my family, and for all the others I know who could really use it.

I’m very much a Keep-it-Simple kind of person. I like my lists, Evernote has been a great help. It shouldn’t be this complicated to organize a few files, a bunch of emails, and some photos.

Some photos really means 4,521 and 136 videos. And I know many of you have much, much larger libraries on their hands.

Yet, when I start to declutter my digital life, I find it a mind-numbing exercise and want to quit after 10 minutes of deleting or moving or editing.

I have to remember, that it is in those 10 minutes where I am making the greatest progress. Just a bit each day in an ordered fashion and my digital life will be a decluttered as my real life.

The bottom line: I’m Konmari-ing my Digital Life!

Wish me luck as I work to complete my Digital Declutter CEO checklist!

My sculptures and wall art installations are very tactile, textiles often taking on organic forms inspired by our natural planet. Utilizing my custom-made steel tools, my favorite pieces to create are large-gauge wire crochet sculptures.

Inspired by my international experiences have provided the opportunity to swim in the gorgeous tropical waters around Hawai’i, hiking the rainforests in Far North Queensland, and witness breathtaking beauty in Africa.
