Online file storage services.
What are you using them for? Long term storage? Another place to store your photos? A backup site?
Did you know that these services are designed to “store all your files online and keep them synced across your devices (G Drive)” These online file storage services allow you to to access your files when you need them, regardless of where you are or what device you are using. In addition, these services allow you to easily share files with collaborators. (They are not designed as online backup! There are better programs for that.)
I currently use all three services. I use Dropbox to store my active business files because this lets me get to the same information regardless of using my Mac or my PC. G Drive is used to share files and collaborate with my professional organization. One Drive is used with a specific client to share important files.
Regardless of which file storage/sharing program you use, I recommend keeping one type of business all in one area – don’t let your business work spread over three different services. This type of organization will let you find what you need quicker and reduce the amount of duplication.

Excuses and excuses for digital clutter
Do any of these excuses sound familiar?
- “I might need that someday!”
- “I could use that again if I started doing such-and-such.”
- “It’s worth so much money, I can’t just get rid of it.”
- “But so-and-so gave that to me, and I don’t want to hurt their feelings.”
- “That’s what I have to remember so-and-so by!”
- “I like it, I just don’t have a place to put it yet. But when I move…”
We often use the same excuses in the digital world that we do in the “physical stuff” realm.
