How I organize my digital files

Nothing I do involves rocket science here, but I wanted to show you how I handle a plethora of digital files without going crazy. After all, keeping things simple and decluttered goes for digital stuff just as much as our physical belongings.

First, I keep everything in Dropbox, in a folder called “E-Books” (this isn’t just for the books in this bundle sale, either—I keep ALL my e-books here). I organize by topic, and they’ll then automatically be organized alphabetically.

When I’m ready to read, I email my Kindle versions to the address Amazon assigned me with my device—then they’ll automatically upload.

Every now and then, I do want to print an e-book—when it’s more of a handbook, say, or when they include printables for writing. Such is the case with the Blog Planning Kit. I simply add them to a folder with dividers, and when I’m done, I either keep or recycle.

And that’s it! Far and away, these resources add almost zero physical clutter.
