HEXPOSE Trusted Products, brands, and tips to integrate technology that improves your life.
The best way to use technology to get organized with your contacts is to keep track of everyone’s contact information through contact-management software. These programs can store emails, Facebook friends, screen names and phone numbers in one place.
A calendar is an essential component to any organizational system. It is needed to keep track of schedules. Most people realize this and have a calendar. In fact, many people have multiple calendars.
You can use technology to get organized. It reduces clutter, automates tedious processes and is mobile. Still, technology cannot organize your life on its own.
In today’s world, families are pulled in different directions far too often. It is important for parents to seek out ways to enrich bonds and relationships instead of everyone going their separate ways. Technology has the ability to be used to lessen stress and time consuming tasks that steal precious moments away from the family.
You can't create a productive workspace without The Purge.
Depending on the condition of your office, the purge could take anywhere from a few hours to a whole day.
The final goal of the purge is to have an office that is completely free of clutter.
A two-tray system is the simplest and most effective for handling incoming paper.
The system works like this: 1) new tray, new documents; 2) old tray, documents you've opened or looked at, and need to deal with.
A bigger trashcan sounds a bit silly, but it's actually a strategic hack. Here's why. Most of the paper that comes into an office can be discarded or digitized rather than filed. Filing papers is one of the tasks that takes the most time, and is thus the most procrastinated.
Cable Management Sleeve
One of the scariest places in your home is probably behind your computer desk. If you don’t manage your wires from the moment devices come out of the box—and doggedly maintain that law and order as you add new products to your workstation—your cords will be a tangled mass within a few short months.
That’s where these sewn neoprene cable organizers come in. They’re five feet long and 4.5-inches wide. You can cut slots into the fabric to accommodate wires coming from other areas of your desk.
Remember that the whole point of organizing your stuff is so that you don't lose track of your important things. To that end, a Bluetooth tracker will make sure your absolute essentials (phone, keys, wallet) are never lost to the chaos.
Hardware and Craft Cabinet
This organizer will keep your craft supplies, fishing tackle, or enamel pin collection color-coded, size sorted, and in plain sight. The polystyrene frames are made of recycled material, and can be mounted on a wall or stacked on top of another.
What is a G-mail Label?
Gmail is a label-based email system. Nearly everything you would normally consider a folder in other email systems is a label in Gmail. That includes your Inbox, Trash, Spam, and Draft folders, which are technically labels in Gmail.
Labels appear to the left in your Gmail screen. They also appear to the left of each Gmail subject line in a closed Gmail message and below the subject line in an open Gmail.
Labels are like folders in that they can be used to group related messages. An important difference between folders and labels is that a message can have more than one label.
Gmail labels have some handy features. They can be color-coded, for example. Later, I'll show you how to use that feature to organize your Gmail inbox.
There is also a way to use Gmail labels like a folder. I'll also explain how to do that as well.
