More Than Just Stuff!

Clutter can be many things!

A person who has problems dealing with a clutter of clothing in their closet, or pop bottles under their porch can have issues in other areas too. For instance their bookshelves might be cluttered with more than books… or even nice displays of knickknacks…

A case in point is my computer. As much as I organize things, my hard drive space is very overcrowded. Who would have thought that a 120 Gigabyte hard drive would become nearly full so quickly! I just find it very difficult to get rid of any file once I have it on my computer. If I know that I have replaced something and that I won’t need to go back to the original… and I am 100% sure of that, then I can… most times.

Thankfully I have a DVD burner and can copy files onto DVD for archiving. That has meant that periodically I can copy my downloads directory onto a DVD and clear that space out. I can also take recorded media that I have downloaded and save that to DVD rather than leave it on my hard drive leaving only what I currently am listening to or viewing. It does make a difference.

Still… I can hardly figure out just where so much of my hard drive space has gone.

I do plan on getting an external hard drive for my notebook computer and that will be in the Terabyte size range. (1000 Gigabytes.) Still I hope to get my self organized so that I don’t clutter it up.

Sometimes it seems the more room we have, the more space we take up!

I remember when 1 Megabyte was HUGE!
