We’re back for the second day of the Get Organized! Digital Declutter Challenge. Today we begin in earnest to start bringing some order to your digital clutter. The goal today is to label all of the cords in your home and office that are used to charge any electronic device you are currently using. Cords often look alike, so it is very helpful to put a label on each one to remind you:
- Which device it charges
- To whom the device belongs
Be sure to label the cords for:
- Wearable (e.g. Fitbit)
- Handheld Game
- Gaming System
- Portable Battery
- Electronic Picture Frame
For now, don’t worry about old cords that you don’t use. Instead, focus on labeling everything that is currently in use by any member of the household, including any new devices that have arrived over the holidays. Going forward, label the cord for every new device you acquire.
This is a small task with a huge productivity payoff. How many cords did you need to label?
