Was listening to the bit where you were talking about filemanagement and downloads.

The one thing I’ve done that has helped the most to deal with files piling up is changing the settings in your given browser to make you pick a folder every time you download something.

This forces you to decided where to put stuff. Before doing this I had a 24gb “downloads” file full of everything now it’s almost empty and all my stuff is easier to find.

It’s a good first step and helps you put some thought into where your putting stuff.

    I love that tip! Spend a second deciding where the files go which will save you hours of blindly searching (and reorganizing) down the road.

    Ben, thats a great idea! I have only changed my options recently, already noticing the difference. It really inforces you to save them in the correct location.

    Wes thanks for answering my question. Love the podcasts

Hi Guys!
Just listened to your podcast (yes, a little late) and have a suggestion for finding files. Its a bit tedious to do but it can save time in the long run, especially if you use some of the same files for different projects. This is for Macs. If you do Command+I on a file you can add tags to that specific file. Then when you need a certain file you can just do a search and it should pull up the relevant files.
