Here are some tips that will help bring order to your digital life this

  oTake it "byte-by-byte." It took a while to create the mess, so it will
    take some time to organize it. Tackle files on your desktop, tablet and
    smartphone one at a time so you don't feel overwhelmed. And remember, just
    because you have the storage space on your device doesn't mean you need to
    keep every photo, document and email. Every little bit of cleanup will
    make a big difference!
  oTackle those taxes. Tax season is finally over, but keeping hard copies of
    your returns for the seven years the IRS recommends can create a cluttered
    mess in your home office. Scan copies of your financials, records and
    receipts and create a folder on your computer for each year.
  oA picture is worth a thousand words. Start by sorting through photos from
    the past year – delete the blurry images, photos of you with your eyes
    closed and shots with a finger over the lens, and create an annual "Photos
    to Print" folder so you can quickly find your best shots.
  oCreate a VIP club. Make an "Important Files" folder with copies of your
    car title, passports, mortgage documents, birth certificates and other
    important records so you can quickly find them when you need them. Make
    sure the folder is backed up so you can access the contents from another
    computer or your smartphone in case you need it when you are away from
  oProtect your files. Make sure your files are safe and secure using
    Carbonite, which is a "set it and forget it" program, and constantly backs
    up your computer files in the background, whenever you are connected to
    the Internet! Additionally, you can remotely access your backed up data
