If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s that the more things you have, the better. If you have more of something, basic math tells you that you have more money. And we all know that more money is better than less.
That’s why I live by this simple mantra: You can never have too much.
This doesn’t just apply to everyday life, as the same applies to your Mac. Yes, losers may tell you that clogging up your Apple computer with data will cause “problems” and make it “slow”, but who are these people? Who are they really? Are they experts? Who made them experts? It wasn’t you. So why listen to them?

In fact, what your MacBook or iMac needs is to be jammed with as much stuff as possible. Because as we learned earlier, the more stuff you have, the more money you have. And you want your car to be worth more, right?
Well, in this article we’ll show you how to declutter your Mac to the max, so you can achieve that lofty goal.
Keep all unused apps – and their leftovers
Have you ever downloaded a bit of software on macOS? Did you decide you didn’t like it? and deleted Shame on you.
Well, hopefully if you uninstalled the app you didn’t wipe all its settings and related files? wait… you do it? How disgusting. Totally disgusting.
Here’s a tip: Never delete old apps or their data. Think of pieces of software as potential collectibles – who knows when they’ll be valuable? And, just like the old comic book figure packs, you’ll want to keep every part of the app.
One day, all those random files might be worth downloading. And you don’t want to look like a sucker in the future.
Copy each file
There is only one better than one useful file Hundreds of copies Exactly the same file. I mean, let’s put it this way: would you rather have one gold bar or thousands of them?
This argument is exactly for your computer. It’s much better to have it full of duplicate files than to be sparse and empty. This is a fact. A stone cold fact. Can you trust a bank without money? So why trust a Mac with a blank hard drive?
While you’re at it, never delete anything
2007 invoice? Leave it. This old application DMG. It stays where it is. Deleted thousands of emails but decided to keep them locally? Your Macbook’s hard drive is a great home for them. Let them rest. Let them become more valuable. This is correct.
DO NOT DO ANYTHING ON THIS SYSTEM
Some would say that all those temporary files your Mac creates that you’ll never use again are “useless.” If someone tells you that, you have my full permission to kiss them right away.
There’s nothing junk about the thousands and thousands of files cluttering up your Mac. In fact, this is just a pleasant sign of aging. You wouldn’t tell a mighty oak tree that all the rings in its trunk documenting its years of growth are “junk” – why would you tell your MacBook any different?
What you’re doing there is creating a museum inside your Apple device. What some now call “garbage”, future generations will be surprised by.
Cache in the attic
Your computer works by storing the files it needs quick access to in some sort of cache. The idea is that it can quickly grab that data when you need it, making the entire process of using your Mac or iMac as seamless as possible.
With that in mind, you might think that clearing your cache is a good idea. wrong
Consider a library. Yes, you can get a book faster if only five novels are saved, but who really wants to read them Da Vinci Code again?
In fact, a library has hundreds of thousands of books, a vast repository of knowledge – and your cache should work the same way. Never clean it. Keep this Mac rebooted.
Keep that trash can full
You know what they say: one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. In my understanding, that means you have to keep your trash, forever and ever.
It must be forever full, getting bigger and bigger until the junk swallows up your entire Apple device and threatens to somehow spill into reality and swamp the apartment.
if this happens Well, you just found a gold mine.
System backups of your system backups
If you’re smart—and you’re also serious about organizing your Mac—then you should have system backups. And I mean lots of them.
Ideally, you don’t want to use one of those fancy tools that make sure you don’t have duplicate files. You want the real deal. Gigabytes and gigabytes of beautiful, beautiful data are just killing your computer.
All Browser Extensions for all browsers
There are millions of browser extensions out there – and most of them are free. What are you waiting for? You should download as much as possible, on as many browsers as possible.
Hell, if you don’t have all the browsers available, go for it! You need to make sure that your Apple device has no available space. Every megabyte must be used to squeeze out every last drop of value.
And, in this mission, I wish you success. I know you will be rich with this.
