How to organize your files


I’m sure this isn’t going to be the most advanced tip you have ever came across, but this new way of organization changed the way I manage my files. Today I’m going to show you how you can Photoshop, paint, PowerPoint, or whatever your favorite software is for creating simple block graphics in order to make your very own custom background.

You’ll also want to label each section in which you plan on placing your files. Something like “work,” “school,” “fun,” or “to organize,” “blog,” “images.”
