Well I have your answer!

Try decluttering your phone storage or either replace your phone (maybe)?

But here, I’ll show you some steps on decluttering your phone if your phone is either slow, full or even need a touch of “light”.

Steps to Declutter your Phone

1. Delete duplicate or unwanted photos

“But what about my thousands of selfies??-” NO EXCUSES! Keep at lease 1-3 selfies that ain’t taken on the same day and keep your most memorable pictures. If you have Instagram, there is a “achieve” button where you can save those pictures you’ve posted and stored on your account.

2. Delete apps that you NEVER use

Remember that app that you used once and never used it again for about 3 months or so but you probably forgot it? Yeah, well, I think it’s time to take that time to remove those apps because girl, you won’t be needing that for a while. Plus, it will clear more storage because apps take more storage on your phone.

3. Use a cleaner app

If I never found a cleaner app, my phone would have had a stack of cluttered unwanted files that I can’t find. I use All-In-One Toolbox (it’s absolutely FREE.) This app helps me delete duplicated files & photos, clean cache, cool down my phone, turn off unused apps and speed up my phone. I recommend it!

4. Install an anti-virus

Keep off those pesky malware and viruses by installing an anti-virus. Same goes for your desktop, it would do absolute a favour to you. There are many free anti-virus apps you should download in the store but only get ONE!

5. Change your wallpaper

Brighten up your background with a clever new wallpaper twice a week so your phone can feel refreshed again. There are so many good look wallpapers out there on Pinterest, Tumblr or if you want a HD photography/Photoshop wallpaper that is free, check out Zedge.

6. Update your apps

If you don’t have your apps set to automatic update or never update at all, I suggest you do that. Keep your apps up to date to get the latest installment and no icky bugs.

7. Categories them

If you’re really bored, I would suggest categorising those apps in folders. I categorise my apps based on their usage (such as games, education, social media etc.) You can categorise your apps in any way you like, could be their usage, rainbow, most used and more based on your preference.

8. Using a small wet towel

Use a small towel or a cloth, add a little warm water and gently wipe your phone to clear away any dust, oil or dirt. I’m surprised by how one screen wipe could make your phone look like you’ve just bought it.

Not Necessary:

8. Change phone covers.

This is not necessary but if you want, you could dress your phone cover to make it pop and different. You could change it based on events, seasons or whatever you like. It’s up to you!

You might not know what you’ll find might give your nostalgia! Like The Teen Queen! 🙂
