go digital...get organized part 5

Do you have a home computer? What about a cell phone, digital camera, PDA, etc? Did you know that along with their intended purposes, these devices can actually help you get more organized too? This week, I wanted to talk a little bit about how you can use digital technology to get more organized. This is the last post for this series of digital organization so check the previous few posts for more ideas.

Research:

Last but certainly not least is research. If you haven’t figured it out by now, you can find pretty much any piece of information you want by searching on the Internet. Anything from recipes for a family picnic to information about your family tree…It’s all there…which can be kind of scary or it can be exciting because we now have access to an infinity of information that we can use to benefit us and help us get more organized!


Just think… there is no need to have recipe books cluttering up your shelves when you can just go to allrecipes.com, bettycrocker.com, kraft-kitchens, marthastewart.com, etc.

Just think… the next time you want information about a product, service or business, all you have to do it type your question into Google or another search engine and you will get thousands of responses right at your fingertips. This type of information would have taken weeks to get before the introduction of the Internet.


Just think… the next time you need a gift or forget to get a gift you can simply log onto your favorite restaurant’s website, purchase a gift card and have it send to the person of your choice all in about 5 minutes. You don’t even have to leave your house. Same goes for shopping. Then next time you need a book, movie, winter coat, purse, etc. just log onto the store’s website, purchase what you want and it should arrive at your doorstep within days. Pretty convenient!


There is so much you can do if you go digital. You can save so much time and a lot of paper work…which will be a tremendous help when you look at your organization goals! Start today! Pick one thing and make it digital. Technology may seem overwhelming at times but if you use it correctly it can be a huge asset!
