iPhone App Organization 

My phone goes everywhere I go.  I use it for almost anything and everything…calls, texts, emails, alarms, shopping, photos, banking, bills, social media…..you get it! It’s basically an extension of my arm.  I love to organize and make things pretty.  So, naturally, I want my phone to be organized and pretty as well!  How? By bundling all the apps into similar categories with a cute wallpaper.

Grouping apps together in folders makes my home screen much less cluttered and easier to me to find what I’m looking for.
