The definition of clutter is “a collection of things lying in an untidy mass” and is synonymous with confusion, chaos and disorder.

I am one to adhere to the belief that a cluttered environment doesn’t necessarily mean that everything in that environment has served its purpose, outlived its usefulness and is no longer necessary or needed.  I do however, believe that  in this age of digital overwhelm, digital clutter has become and will continue to be have a major impact; one that negatively impacts productivity.

I read an article by Elizabeth Larkin that categorized physical clutter into five areas and found it interesting that these same  five categories apply to digital clutter as well albeit with a little twist.
