Spring cleaning is top of mind for many of us right now, but we often forget that a good ol’ clean out doesn’t only apply to our homes. With phones, computers, tablets, emails, calendars… the list goes on—our digital lives can get a bit cluttered, too. Here are three quick ways we’re organizing our digital life this spring.

Review Your iTunes Subscriptions

You know that random app that you signed up for like five months ago that you’re not using anymore but still getting charged $5 a month? Take the time to review your subscriptions and make sure you’re actively using each of them, if not delete! They don’t make this super easy to find (it’s not in the apps themselves), so here’s where to go: Hop in your iTunes account > click Account in the top menu > then ‘View My Account’ in the dropdown > scroll down to ‘Settings’ > to the right of ‘Subscriptions’ click ‘Manage’. This is where you can access, update, view pricing or cancel your subscriptions.

Tame Those Promo Emails

If you use Gmail like we do, then you’re familiar with the ‘Promotions’ tab. While we love that this tab keeps all those promo emails organized, it can get out of hand—we were getting thousands a month! No, thanks. We used Unroll.Me to get organized. This nifty (and free) tool allows you to easily unsubscribe with one click and shows you in alphabetical order the newsletters you are subscribed to. You can also add newsletters to what is called a ‘Rollup’ that easily combines newsletters you DO want to see in a single daily digest. Genius!

Stop Forgetting All Those Passwords

We used to keep all our passwords in a Google doc… worst idea ever and so dangerous! Now, we use LastPass and absolutely love it. It’s a simple browser extension that allows you to access ALL your passwords with one master password.
