Time for some digital spring cleaning: How to organize your tech life

You could just delete everything. But let's try some more moderate tech cleanup tactics first.

Summer’s almost here — but before you start Instagramming up the barbecue, wouldn’t it be nice to declutter all the technology in your life?

It can be hard to know where to start. Luckily, there’s the newest episode of Too Embarrassed to Ask, in which Kara Swisher and Lauren Goode tell you everything you need to know about digital spring cleaning:

Kara and Lauren discuss strategies for tidying up overloaded email inboxes, apps you never use and gadgets that are gathering dust in your closet. They also share readers’ and listeners’ tips for digital cleanup, including the nuclear option: Delete everything!
