Get Organized: How to Clean Up Your Messy Digital Life

Jill E Duffy

Cutting out clutter might be the best thing you’ve ever done, not just in your closet, but also on your computer, smartphone, email, and online accounts.

Get Organized: How to Clean Up Your Messy Digital Life is a how-to guide for reimagining your digital life and getting it to a happier and more productive place.

Author and software expert Jill Duffy shows you the apps, websites, and other freely available tools you'll need to put your life back in order. You'll learn how to:

· Organize a computer so you can find what you need when you need it. · Streamline your email to clear out your inbox for good. · Protect your most important data with powerful passwords and simple backup solutions. · Clean up your photos, music, and social media accounts—and keep them that way. · Manage your finances and your online presence, both now and after you die. · And much more!

"Fixing our relationship with email and introducing people to tools that can help them effectively manage their inboxes is important, and Jill Duffy's book provides concrete suggestions on how to make changes needed to organize our lives." - Gentry Underwood, cofounder of Mailbox

"Even if you’ve never met a filing system you’d actually use, you can pick up tips from Jill’s surprisingly wry manual for cleaning up your digital life. From dreaming up better passwords to choosing social media headshots, Jill’s got it all covered -- and organized for you, too." - Laura Vanderkam, author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast and 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think
