Spring Clean Your Digital Space

7 things that you must spring clean right now!



Spring is here! Temperatures are getting warmer. The birds are singing and the flowers are blooming! It’s time to spring clean your digital space. You know, all of the checklists, cheatsheets, podcasts, etc. that you’ve signed up for. You know that you are holding onto stuff that you don’t need. Here are 7 things that you MUST spring clean right now!



Email – Yes, I have signed up for all of those freebies. Did you really use all of those checklists, productivity hacks, cheat sheets, etc.? If not, unsubscribe from these newsletters. Spring cleaning your inbox, increases your focus on productivity.

Inbox – Yes, inbox. People wrongly equate email to inbox; but, they are vastly different. Your inbox has folders. You may have forgotten what you’ve saved in these folders. Go through them and delete anything that’s irrelevant to your life right now. This frees up space.

Social Media – Though the ‘experts’ say that you must be everywhere, are you using all of these websites? For me, my primary social media channels are LinkedIn, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. There are many others but whittle down to the ones I use keep me focused.

Phone – How many apps and numbers that you haven’t called in a long time? Deleting them saves you memory, increases battery space and money (yes, some apps cost money.). I know that meditating was one of your New Year’s Resolutions so you paid to download that cool meditation app which you never used. Ditch your subscription.

Cloud and Data Storage – Remember all of those free checklists and cheatsheets that you signed up via email? Well, you stored all of them online. Delete all of them since you aren’t using any of them. Deleting these files save you space, time and money.

Browser – People overlook their browser until it starts spooling and moving slow. Clearing your cache and deleting unused bookmarks increase your computer’s speed. Dump any sites that you haven’t visited in over 90 days.

Computer – Be honest. We have so much junk stored on our computers. But are you using all of those desktop and task bar icons?

    Ha I had to laugh at that as I have two meditation apps on my phone that I downloaded in the new year and haven’t used yet! Re the inbox, my mantra is an inbox is a sorting box not a storing box.

    I honestly never associated spring cleaning with my digital space, only ever my physical surroundings, but this was good! I like that you included all the digital spaces rather than solely focusing on one – social media, email, and the cloud, which basically follows us everywhere! Good stuff!

      Yes, it creeps up on you. You sign up for all of these freebies and they clog your inbox.

      Thanks! I write this article because I have been there.

    You hit the nail on the head with this. Digital clutter is real and makes managing life so much more difficult, for sure.

      Digital can be deceptive because it is not physical. However, you are paying so much money in cloud storage fees keeping all of these freebies that you don’t need.
