Organizing 101: Decluttering Your Smartphone

A few handy tricks can speed up your phone


It's amazing how technology has taken over our lives. From simply looking for pegs and furniture ideas online, we now have the "power" to purchase pieces and even control appliances! Since the smartphone is one of our daily essentials, it's important that you keep it in tip-top shape. Aside from organizing your desktop, and your other belongings, it's time to apply these tips to your beloved phone.

Unnecessary apps and old photos may be taking up a huge chunk of your phone's memory. Fix your phone with the help of these tips:   

Update your apps and delete those that you don't use

A download spree is inevitable—especially if you have a new phone or memory card. But do you really need too many apps and games? For photography enthusiasts, limit your photo editing apps to just one or two. Delete those that you don't need or use as these only eat up memory. Make sure you regularly update all your apps as well to avoid bugs.

Transfer your old media files into hard drives

Do you still have photos, vides, and music files from five years ago on your phone? Review your files and transfer the old ones into CDs and external drives. Doing this gives you enough space for recent photos, videos, and more important files.

Download home organizing apps

Since we’re all glued to our phones (most of the time), you may want to download apps that can help you bring order to the home. Consider saving space for Sortly, an app that helps you keep track of items at home and Evernote, if you would like to take note of your family's schedule. There are also money management apps that you can check out to help you work around your budget.
