8 foolproof ways to clutter up your Mac


If there’s one thing I’ve learnt in this life, it’s that the more stuff you have, the better. If you have a higher number of things, basic math tells you that you have more money. And we all know that more money is better than less money.

That’s why I live life by this simple mantra: you can never have too many things.

This doesn’t just apply to day-to-day life, as the same is true of your Mac. Yeah, losers might tell you that clogging up your Apple computer with data will lead to “problems” and make it “go slower,” but who are these people? Really, who are they? Are they experts? Who made them experts? It wasn’t you. So why listen to them?

Really, what your MacBook or iMac needs is to be jammed with as much stuff as possible. Because, as we learnt earlier, the more things you have, the more money you have. And you want your machine to be more valuable, right?

Well, in this piece, we’re gonna show you how to clutter up your Mac to the max, so you can achieve that lofty goal.

Keep all your unused apps — and their leftovers

Have you ever downloaded a bit of software on macOS? Decided you didn’t like it? And deleted it? Shame on you.

Well, hopefully, if you did delete the app, you didn’t clear all its settings and associated files? Wait… you did? How monstrous. Utterly monstrous.

Here’s a tip: never delete your old apps, or any of their data. Think of bits of software as potential collectibles — who knows when they’re going to be valuable? And, just like the packaging on those old comic book figurines, you want to keep ALL bits of the app.

One day, all those random files could be worth loads. And you don’t want to look like a sucker in the future.

Duplicate each and every file
