4896 screenshots? Me too!
I am good at many things.
One thing I’m really good at: organizing my photos on my computer.
There are folders and labels and colour codes and multiple external hard drives.
But, as good as I am at keeping my computer organized…..I am HORRIBLE at keeping my phone camera reel in order.
It looks like a bunch of screenshots and IG Stories and daily life snaps all got mixed up in a tornado and then spit back out in no particular order.
Every week or so I say I’m going to go through it all and get it under control.
So, you know, when I actually want to find that recipe I screen-shotted, I can FIND it. (I usually just give up and end up re-googling.)
Then I put it off and it doesn’t get done!
But, enough is enough.
I’m a woman on a mission.
I will conquer the chaos that is my phone.
And, I’m inviting you to join me.
Because big tasks are better with friends, right?
We are going to have organized photos in 2021 and we are going to be damn proud of it!
Over the next 3 weeks, let’s conquer our phone photos together.
Clear out the junk. (And I mean junk in the nicest way, but really, it’s time to purge big time.)
Those burst mode photos that you have 100 of? Time to narrow it down to 1.
The time you took 5 screenshots when you needed 1? Delete 4 of them.
The 456 photos of your kid opening one gift? Narrow it down to 2.
This week, set aside a few minutes each day to get rid of all the extras.
You can do this by going through and manually deleting photos, but when mass deleting, I find it easiest to use an app called Cleen. Cleen lets you quickly swipe up or down to keep or delete photos. It’s a thousand times faster than selecting within your reel. And if you’re exuberance you mistakenly delete a photo you actually meant to keep, there’s an UNDO button (it’s a life saver!).
Next week I’ll be publishing a new blog post with TASK 2.
Ready!? Let’s do this!
