Computers are awesome time savers! They allow us to get more done, help to keep things streamlined, and provide a wealth of information that is easily accessible and at our finger tips 24/7.
We no longer have to grab the phone book to look up a phone number, nor do we have to pull out a map when we need directions. Google is at our beck and call.
And let’s face it, we’re a bit spoiled.
However, with all of this fabulous information, our computers can quickly turn into cluttered and disorganized messes. Our once streamlined screens can easily become chaotic desktops.
To better organize your computer, I challenge you to follow these five steps. (You’ll thank me someday when you have to restore your computer or you need to find THAT photo.)
(1) Construct a system.
Only organize your computer in a way that makes sense to you! It has to work for you. I’m not going to give you specifics about folders and sub folders, because you have to construct it in a logical way that seems logical to you. Just create some sort of system.

The following is a guest post from regular contributor, Rachel at Useful Beautiful Home. Long ago, one of the first drawers I organized in the kitchen was for children.

The following is a guest post from regular contributor, Kristin at The Gold Project. Organizing an office can be a little overwhelming.

If there is one thing I’m most passionate about when it comes to organizing is the importance of teaching kids’ how to organize when they are young. But the problem I see over and over again is that parents wait until their kids aren’t home to go into their rooms and start tossing things out. […]
