Welcome to Mission #18 of our 52 Get Organized Missions.
Living an organized life is a lot easier when you have systems and tools that are themselves well ordered.
If you’ve completed the previous mission (Get Organized Mission #17: Create Your Bedroom Sanctuary) I hope you’re enjoying your new retreat.
So in this Get Organized Mission we’re going to tackle that modern repository of information and entertainment – the computer. Our organizing process will make it easy to know where to save your files, give you confidence to find stuff when you need it, and create a lovely sense of order in your digital life.
Note: Email is a separate challenge and has its own mission: How To Simplify Email Management [Mission #33].
Remember – you only need 30 minutes for the basic mission. Extended Options are below.
