If you’re like us, you’ve got a bazillion photos sucking memory on your phone, not to mention all those unnamed documents on your computer. And we won’t even talk about our email inboxes. But that’s all about to change for us, and you, thanks to our special guest on this week’s Spawned with Kristen and Liz podcast. We’re so thrilled to welcome special guest Joshua Zerkel, an organizational expert and Director of Global Community and Training at Evernote (which our readers already love) to share his smart tips and tricks when it comes to digital clutter.

You can listen right now, and then make sure to subscribe to our podcast on iTunes so you never miss an episode. Not sure how to listen to podcasts on your phone? No problem! Check that link for a step-by-step tutorial.

With lots of menu choices at their Iron Skillet and Country Pride restaurants, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’ll be able to fuel up on a budget.
