Technology is one of those areas that people always seem to struggle with, myself included. There’s something about an old phone or a mysterious cable that we just can’t seem to let go of. In reality, there’s probably a lot in your technology drawer that you don’t need to keep, so let’s get cracking!
- Gather it all together. I feel so repetitive every time I write this, but it is an essential starting point. Today, you need to grab all your chords, cables, laptops, cases, computers, tablets, iPods, phones, hot tools (straighteners, blow dryers etc)… anything that your great-grandmother wouldn’t understand isn’t the topic today!
- Separate the actual technology from the accessories. E.g phones, tablets etc.
- Match them up! Match up all your chords to their specific device. Put your iPhone charger with your iPhone, your laptop bag with your laptop and your aux chord with your speaker etc. If there are any accessories left that don’t match a device you own, put it in the discard pile now.
- Go through each of the devices and declutter. Decide which of the devices you are keeping, and which ones you can let go of. Try to avoid keeping devices as ‘back ups’. If you’re really nervous, you may want to keep one of your old phones in case of emergency, but that should be the height of it for most people. If you’re discarding a device, get rid of all the cables and accessories associated with it too.
- Decide what you’re doing with your discard pile. Discarding technology can be surprisingly difficult, so here’s a post I found that breaks it all down for you.
No longer will you have to fight through snakes of cables to find the one you actually need! I really hope you found this helpful, let me know how you’re getting on down below or over on Instagram/Twitter with the #FeBoost. I’ll see you tomorrow for some digital decluttering!
