They even have a name for it: spring cleaning. Although, honestly, wouldn’t you rather be outside doing fun spring stuff instead of rummaging through dusty bins and junk drawers? I propose you carve out some time from your holiday schedule to take a look at the technology you’re not using and consider selling, donating, recycling or just tossing what’s no longer needed.
