Drop Box

Do you have a home computer and a work computer and struggle with transferring files from both?  I have the solution for you: Drop Box!


When my school district gave all teachers laptops three years ago, I gave my personal laptop to my husband since his was really old and needed to be upgraded.  Finally, last month, my husband got a new laptop and gave me my old one back.  I had been wanting to separate my school life from my personal life (and get all my pictures and music off my work computer), so this was the perfect opportunity.  I was really liking not having to take my computer and charger home each night.  But, when I created something new at home, or started it at school and wanted to finish it at home, I was having to lug around the laptops (school laptop to home, and personal laptop to school).

One day I was reading Danielle's blog over at It's Grow Time, and read her post about Dropbox.  It's a cloud storage system where you can save documents from one computer and access them from another.  You can share documents with just yourself or with other people.  And the best part, it's FREE!!!

If you are interested in using this resource, click here.  You start out with 2 GB of space, but 250 MB is added when people I invite sign up for the service.  Basically, a win-win for everyone! :)

How do you manage documents and storage?  Do you have two separate computers or do you only use one like I used to?

  1. This site sounds amazing!! I would love an invite. Cmizufuka@gmail.com

    I have a school laptop that I now leave at school and my personal one stays at home. I was just thinking to myself that I need to put all of my files on my home laptop as well (especially since every few years the upgrade our school computers and everything gets wiped out!)

    Thanks a bunch!!
