  • National Love Your Files Week

    Are you the type of person who has a difficult time organizing and simplifying all your work and files? If that's you..trust me, you are NOT alone. If you saw my work desk you would feel so much better. My supervisor has no idea how I'm able to find anything! If you tried to find anything on my personal laptop, you would spend the rest of your life looking for that ONE image or document.  I'm also a pack rat so I like to hoard old papers and files that I THINK I'll be needing...one day...yes, I need help!

    Well - this week is National Love Your Files Week. Not just organizing your files, but it's about simplifying the things in your life and cutting out things you don't need. I feel like the organizing gods are trying to send me a message because over the weekend, I was working at home and couldn't remember which folder contained a certain file....and I think I spent a good half hour looking for it before giving up.

    Here are a few Aluratek products that can help ORGANIZE and SIMPLIFY your life:

    1. Digital Photo Frames

Plug-n-Play to your desktop or laptop computer to easily store, transfer and access all your digital music, photo, video, multimedia and personal data files with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps.

    Here are also a few tips that can get you to be on top of things -

    1. Determine what you absolutely need to hold on to and with everything else, toss it in the trash.

    2. Sort out your documents. Go through all your items / computer files  you have decided to hold on to and determine how exactly you want to organize them. How are your computer files going to be organized? Are they going to be sorted out in separate folders? Do you need two folders for your house and car information or will you keep them together?

    3. Create a list of which items you have filed away, which folder they are in and when they are no longer useful and can be thrown out. Creating an inventory will allow you to trash any items after a specified amount of time.

    4. Purchase a filing system. Whether it is a whole filing cabinet or a filing box for your physical documents or a external hard drive for your digital files, it is very important to keep all your documents in one place so they're not scattered all over your office or home!

    5. Most importantly, if you are organizing your computer you will need to back up your files. The last thing you want is for your hard drive to crash and wave sayonora to your precious documents! Back your files up!

    Happy National Love Your Files Week!

  • National Love Your Files Week

    Happy Monday! We hope everyone had a relaxing and productive weekend.

    Did you know that this week is National Love Your Files Week? How random! But what a great excuse to finally get off our seats and start organizing and cleaning out our office space! Take advantage of this week to get your files in order and regain peace of mind. I know I need to get on this because my work space here at Aluratek AND my office at home is a disaster! Whoops :)

    Do you have a shoebox full of bills, receipts, or any other important documents? What about files on your desktop? Are there any files you know you don't need but you keep them on your computer anyway? *raises hand* I am so guilty of this! Anytime I think about organizing, I immediately freak out! I mean it's such a nightmare to organize (at least for me)! However after much research on this lovely national "holi-week" I found ways to be on top of things - Here are a few tips that can get you started :

    1. Determine what you absolutely need to hold on to and with everything else, toss it in the trash.

    2. Sort out your documents. Go through all your items / computer files  you have decided to hold on to and determine how exactly you want to organize them. How are your computer files going to be organized? Are they going to be sorted out in separate folders? Do you need two folders for your house and car information or will you keep them together?

  • Tis' The Season For Spring Cleaning!

    SpringCleaning

    Spring has approached and you know what that means - it's Spring cleaning time! Yes, it's not exactly as exciting as Easter eggs or cute witto wabbits, but it will make your life easier...after it's all done of course! Here are a few ways to make your Spring cleaning experience a bit more bearable:

    - Are you a pack rat? I'm kind of guilty of being one because I cherish every single thing I own! I still have the plastic bag that carried my amazzzinggg and delicious meal from my first New York trip! My husband wants me throw it away, but I'm having a hard time letting go...yes, it's kind of weird and sad, I know! However, I understand my husband's concern. The more you hold on to, the less storage you will have in the house. Do you have stacks of old CD's / cassette tapes that bring you back to good ol' days or what about that old tv collecting dust in your garage? Donate them to your local Salvation army or Good Will. Download all your music from iTunes into your smart phone, mp3 player or tablet. If you don't want to download, try streaming your music from Pandora or Spotify! No more stacked CDs and tapes!

    - Cleaning out and organizing your garage space will go by much faster with some good music. Jam out to some of your favorite tunes with our BUMP Portable Speaker!

    - We're not suggesting you to toss your family photos or important files, but you can now store both in a digital photo frame or a hard drive.  If you’re looking to clear out some space, consider scanning old printed documents and saving them on an external hard drive. Not only will they take up less space, but they’ll also be easier to find when you need them and possibly more secure than they would be sitting in a box in the garage.

  • Fresh And So Clean, Clean!

    Today is National Clean Your Virtual Clean Desktop! Have you ever heard of this day? I haven’t, but what a good excuse to clean out your computer or at least organize your files! Remember when you got your computer, and the neat, empty desktop looked clean, productive and well-organized? Take a look now – I bet that it’s scattered with icons that you don’t even look at, that there are documents and a ton of files around folders that are in frantic need of organization. I’ll be the first to admit that I am in need of some desktop organization! Take a look at my desktop! Don’t judge me!

    Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 10.07.15 AM

    Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day encourages you to put things away, delete files that are not required, and to make it a habit to stop things getting so messy!

    Here at Aluratek, we can help you get organized. We have a wide variety of hard drive duplicators to help you store and back up your files. Is your computer starting to run slower? Are you worried that your hard drive may crash you may lose all your valuable data? I’ve been in one terrible situation when my external hard drive crashed the night before my big project was due!! I should’ve backed it up because those files were long gone! Sad, sad day! Aluratek’s hard drive duplicators can definitely lend a hand and would have been of use for me. All it does is simply duplicate information from one hard drive to another. Not only will you have a fresh new copy of data, but you will be able to eliminate unwanted files and keep things organized. You can even find some of our duplicators in our Outlet Store!

    So start organizing so your computer can be fresh and so clean, clean! ;)
