PHILADELPHIA (CBS)–You have enough to do in your real life that organizing your digital life, from email and social media, to photos and passwords, can seem overwhelming. A new book has some advice to help you get back on track.

There’s just more and more to check, manage, share, and store.

Dealing with it all while maintaining your sanity is the goal of Jill Duffy, whose new book ‘Get Organized: How to Clean Up Your Messy Digital Life,’ expands upon her column at PCMag.com.

“These things pile up really quickly. Part of that is the nature of the digital format. We can take more pictures than ever before. We can send more communications easily, instantly, and virtually free,” Duffy says.

She says in her book, “The how-to sections are really meant for the average person.”

As opposed to the tech expert, though even gadget gurus can benefit from her take-a-step-back approach.

“Being organized is really about having a lifestyle of organization, rather than doing a one-off cleanup project.”

Still, it takes a kick in the pants, and usually a long weekend, to get going with things like password management and inbox streamlining.

In her $5 e-Book, Duffy offers how-to’s in text and video.
