Finding That Digital Flip Flop

Last week I confessed that I am not exactly one of the most organized people on the planet. My lack of organizational skills means that I’m constantly playing this game of hide and seek with myself. I’m often scrambling to find my wallet, my keys, my sunglasses, that electric bill that I have to pay etc.

I have all of these little “safe places” around the house where I tend to put stuff, places where the kids won’t be able to get access to them, or where I convince myself I’ll easily be able to find them later, but the truth is more often than not my wife and kids are waiting impatiently in the car when it’s time to go someplace while daddy runs around the house like a mad man trying to find his other flip flop.

Unfortunately lately I’ve been noticing that finding stuff in my digital life is becoming nearly as frantic as my real one. I’ve got so many different digital safe places that I put stuff that remembering exactly where each thing is has become a bit of a nightmare.

In this weeks Tech Tip I’m sharing a new tool that i’ve discovered that is helping me combat the frantic game of hide and seek and giving me an edge when it comes to finding that digital equivalent of my missing flip flop.

It’s Good to Have GROUPies

Ahhhh The internet it’s… a beautiful thing. It’s a place of discovery, it’s a place for us to share and be shared with. We can create a website in seconds and connect with friends in realtime. One of the biggest trends on the web right now seems to be the idea of creating groups.

In our real lives we have different groups of people we share things with, there are our friends and family, our work buddies, our church group, and the list goes on and on.

In this weeks Tech Tip I’m sharing a new site for organizing the types of information you share with these groups. It’s easy to use and best of all it’s free.
