As you may know, the Ultimate Homemaking eBook Bundle Sale is on sale until May 4. It’s an amazing package because the resources included are so helpful! And you really can’t beat the price, 97 ebooks for only $29.97!
I thought I’d address one small detail you may be wondering about. What exactly are you going to do with 97 new ebooks? That’s a lot of books! If you’re anything like me, you probably already own other ebooks, making your collection pretty substantial.
In an attempt to actually read the ebooks I purchase, I’ve found it mandatory to have them organized.
Here’s how I organize my ebooks:
- First of all, as soon as I receive the email to download the ebook(s), I do just that. I download the book(s) right away.
- Once it’s downloaded, I sort each book by category on my computer.
- To do this, I created a folder with the library’s title (eBooks), then I created a folder for each category within the ebook library. Here’s a screenshot for an example:
- In each category I’ve created, I’ll find all the ebooks I own relating to that topic. As an example, here are some of the ebooks I have in my In the Kitchen category:
- Create as many subcategories as you want. In my “Homemaking” folder, for example, I have subfolders for “Cleaning” and “Organizing.”
- I also created a folder called “Not Needed.” These are ebooks that may have been part of a package, but they don’t fit into my life at this particular moment. I may keep them for future use, or I may gift them to someone who can use them. (This is only allowed as long as I don’t keep a copy for myself.)
- Be sure to store duplicate copies of your ebooks on other electronic devices. Computers crash unfortunately, so it’s important to store your ebooks (or other important files) in more than one place. Some options are: your spouse’s computer, a jump drive, or a file hosting website like Google Drive or Dropbox. In the case of ebooks, you may also print each book to store in binders, if you like.
