I am a digi-packrat

After reading this great article I have have come to terms to that I am a pack rat - digi pack rat. I've also been learning this lately as my computer has been bogged down and running SSOOOO slow. I've had to get another hard drive, and have been in the process of trying to move files over and clean up so that I can get this thing moving faster. My husband and I have come to the conclusion that we need to clean it off, reinstall programs and do a good cleaning, formatting, etc.

But after reading this article I realize that I really need to do some major simplifying as well. It's been so frustrating to try to work on big projects while moving so slowly that it has become pointless to even be try to be working on these things.

So for the next little while... I'm going to start simplifying my digi stuff. I've been trying to simplify other areas of my life and it's been going well.... but now it's time to simplify this area of my life as well. So that it's more efficent, more simplier, and more enjoyable.

I hear you! I think that's one of the downfalls of the digital age. We can't actually see the piles of files and documents stacking up like we can in real life, so we don't realize how bad it's getting until things start to go wonky on us. Good luck!
