Decluttering Tip of the Day

Digitizing isn’t decluttering.

With the advent of digital cameras and even better – phones on our cameras – people started spouting the advice to “just take a picture and then you can declutter it.”

This might be helpful with some larger items if a picture will actually help you preserve your memories, but chances are if it’s really something important, it’s already in existing pictures.

But especially for scanning documents and photos, people can end up with TONS of digital files to replace boxes and boxes of things that could’ve actually been shredded, burned, or recycled with little to no pain or sadness.

Instead, people end up with hundreds or thousands of files on their hard drive representing delayed decisions.

PLEASE take the time to actually look through and declutter these categories, and if you decide to scan, photograph, or digitize, do that ONLY with the things you truly want to keep.

Take the advice of someone who is currently decluttering her computer files, one by one… digital clutter IS still clutter. Don’t add to it carelessly!

    Same goes for dvd files. Disposing of the cases, but keeping 100s of dvds will make a visual change but not limit the number of films you own (and my never want to watch). I’ve resorted to the victory-lap method. If you actually watch it / read it / use it (“one more time” – or for the first time at all) in any other way, you will be surprised how often you wonder why on earth you bothered to keep it!
