The end of every year is a time for reflection and taking stock. It’s also the perfect time to get ready for the new year by organizing your digital assets for 2022.

We've gone all out on digital organization tips and how-to’s this month so that you can start off the new year right. 

Trustworthy guide: How to organize your digital life

Our step-by-step guide shows you how to define your organization goals, research the best software solutions, and organize your digital information in a way that will set you up for success.

In addition to emptying out folders and deleting junk mail, it's important to figure out your goals and what motivates you. 

For example:

  • I feel overwhelmed with an overcrowded desktop every time I open up my computer

  • It’s hard to share family photos because they are saved in too many different places and they are difficult to find

  • I’m worried that my family isn’t as prepared as it should be for emergencies and future events
