It’s time for a new 5 Minute Organizing Challenge! What can you do in 5 minutes to gain a little order in your life? You can put a few things back in place or gather your important items. Here’s a new set of five things for you to consider adding to your routine this month. Try them on for size and feel free to suggest a few of your own.
1. Back up your laptop to your external hard drive or to Carbonite (or Mozy). Remember, you just have to start or schedule the back up. You don’t have to sit with your machine during the back up process.
2. Delete five e-mails.
3. Put five cables or cords that you no longer use in your electronics recycling bin.
4. While you’re at it, put those old cell phones and unwanted electronics in the recycling bin, too.
5. Wipe down the screen on your mobile phone and laptop with a microfiber cloth.
