Do you like a clean room? How about an organized desktop? If you’re anything like me, clutter can ruin the work experience entirely, resulting in a lack of creativity and a huge decrease in productivity. In my search for a more automated e-cleaning solution, I came across the Noodlesoft program Hazel.
I am constantly searching for new apps to improve my Mac experience, but many fail to meet my expectations so they are thereafter thrown into the Trash. What we don’t realize is that removing these applications can be a little more complicated than just throwing the icon into the Trash. Hazel will actually offer to uninstall the program and do all the dirty work for you.
Another reason I like Hazel is the simple maintenance it performs—you can easily set it to remove incomplete downloads and/or duplicate files after a certain period of time (eg. an hour, day, week). Hazel sits comfortably atop the menu bar and has a trial period of two weeks. After that, it is available for purchasing for $21.95. The price, unfortunately, is quite steep. However, if you’re somebody who has an overwhelming amount of files on your computer, it could be worth it.
